access port+first mods?
 
So I've been lurking on hear for a week or two, and have been reading that you need a tune for most mods. Would flashing my ecu with a Cobb ap be a safe tuning device for a CAI, BOV, TMIC and a full exhaust. Just some basic mods, but I've been reading people say to get it tuned by some one professionally for these. This is going to be my DD so I don't want to do anything to big. Thanks

Go on cobbs website they have credentials for maps. However since u can log with AP maybe try generic map and log N send it into cobb and they can tweak it. But u will be running lean or rich. Off the shelf maps i shy away from

In theory no you cant use the AP, at least not with the "generic"maps. Cobb makes no OTS maps for an I/C upgrade on the subies. You could however still have the car tuned with the AP for the mods you have or will put on the car.

Please dont, you will only regret it;)

Ok that helps a lot, thanks again and have any of you or anyone you know sent in their AP to cobb if so would you say to do that or get a different software. Also blaze I was going to keep it recirculated so wouldn't that not change how well the engine ran?

What do you mean by send it in? I had to send mine in as something was messed up internally with the AP, it cost a few bucks, but was worth it. It came back updated and with every map I had on it still on the AP.

My buddy paid cobb to tweak his map. Sorta like an etune. Just "stage 2" TBE setup but his setup did comply originally with credentials but then he added parts He ran map then logged and sent in to them and they adjusted and relogged until tune was right

Right, they sent in the maps, not the AP. Sending in the AP is generally for one that is locked, or is malfunctioning. Regardless Cobbs customer service is top notch.

Mazzanic how long did it take for them to do that I wouldn't be able to go more than a couple days without a car, and about how much did it cost or him to do that?

newtothegame 04-26-2012 06:47 PM

Like I said they shouldnt be sending in the AP at all. And the time usually depends on their work load. You should still be able to drive the car, even tho its not really recommended.

U can save money by just using tactrix cable and rom raider. Thats what i am doing now working with an etuner. PM if you wanna go that route

Might be a tad off topic but, what mods can you do to the exhaust that dont require a tune?

mosc 04-27-2012 02:30 PM

basically nothing that does anything from a power or airflow perspective. Changing the muffler doesn't do anything, so you can do that. Changing straight pipes with other pipes doesn't do anything either so if you want to call that a "cat back", then that's what I'd say.
