I have a JDM EJ205 with single avcs I imported through a ebay seller with less then 50xxx yada yada.... After contacting several tuners in California Including Cobb Tuning about using a Access Port for the motor, they highly recommended NOT running a Cobb Acess Port. They told me to run a opensource tune and get a base map off of a tuner (which i did through Torqued Performance) because of the difference in compression ratio and the new sensors involved in the avcs motor. The tuner recommended purchasing if i could a avcs harness and ecu to reap the benefit of the avcs which im in search of now.... I was able to install the motor WITHOUT swapping cam gears OR intake manifold like i had previously read in another thread, and run a usdm harness and ecu and it runs fantastic. I did the standard replacement of the timing belt, pulleys, water pump and thermostat. I have not got it on the dyno so as far of loss in power or gains I cannot tell. Hopefully i will have a response soon.....
