Default AccessTuner and engine codes

Will the COBB AccessTuner (non PRO version) allow to disable specific OBD codes? I know ATR did that but I'd like to find out if the new version also allows it before I shell out $150. That's the one I'm talking about: https://www.cobbtuning.com/products/...ru-accesstuner

I'm in the same boat as you. The shop I called charges $250 just to delete codes, so it might be worth it to pay the $150 if the software can do that.

The current ATR does have the code (DTC) selection tab. It does not have to be a Pro-Tuner version of ATR. So pay the $150 fleecing-fee, spend the time on the videos, and take the tests to get your ATR install.

Yes, you can disable codes with ATR. $150 may seem like a lot of money just to disable a code, but you'll find it useful for so much more. I got Accesstuner Race recently, and it's turned out to be a very good investment.

My MAF scaling was off my up to 9% at WOT, causing me to run lean while advancing timing several degrees. I wasn't hitting boost targets at certain RPM's because the WGDC tables needed to be tweaked. By modifying these things, and then advancing the timing a little, I was able to gain a fair amount of power over the COBB 91 map, while at the same time being safer from knock events. I've also disabled Stratified Fueling and lowered cold idle rpms to save fuel. The program isn't difficult to use if you have a decent understanding of how engines work, and if you're working from an established base map like a COBB map.

If you want to go the E-tune route, I would recommend Eric at Torqued Performance. He charges significantly less than $250, and that's for a road tune. He might charge you less than $100 just to disable a code, but you might as well get a full tune if you're going to hire him.

i'm sure it's understood but I'll throw it out there anyways. If you're protuned/etuned you can't just get accesstuner and disable the code. You won't be able to open the tune file because its most likely locked. You'd be working from an OTS map.

So you can't do a EGR delete and just go in to disable to DTC or make an adjustments to the pro/etune.

That is a good point. And also one of the reasons I do not agree with the practice of map locking.
