Default Looking for a used Cobb AP V2 - what to look out for?

Hey guys-

You might have read my similar post about buying a used downpipe. I got some many good answers, thought I would try this regarding the Cobb AP.

I'm looking for a used AP, preferably the v2. What things should I look out for when making the purchase? I know it needs to be unmarried, but that's about it. I saw somewhere a guy was concerned if the Stage 1 and Stage 2 maps were preloaded, but I don't know if that matters.

Any help is appreciated!

all you need to really look for is that the usb port isnt smashed to crap, and that its unmarried
you can change the maps as you like

The OTS maps won't really matter. Are you planning on getting a ProTune soon? If you are I wouldn't install it. Just let your tuner install it before you get your tune. Plus, you can just download them fron Cobb's website for free.

Not planning on getting a Pro Tune. Just a standard stage 2 WRX.

If you're not planning on getting tuned then you will need the ACN 91 Stage 2 map from Cobb.

I've never messed with one of these before. So how can you tell if it is unmarried?
