Cobb Access port on WRX 05 & 06

I have a 05 WRX and my friend just bought an 06 we were wondering If its possible to buy just 1 of these units and share it? Can we get some feed back on anyone who has this system? I know the maps would be different, but can you use the access port on more than just one car? TIA

Nope, for two reasons. 1. The ECU's are not compatible 2. When you load a map into any given ECU the programmer will not recognize any other ECU other than the original.

You can use it on different cars but not at the same time. The web site discusses all this in detail.

it's cobb's way of saying no to hardware piracy..
yeah getupinder is right, the ECU's are different, and what happens is the accessport will "marry" to one ecu at a time.. meaning it will work with one until you unmarry it, and when you unmarry it.. it will take the map with it and revert your ecu back to stock.

keep it in the dirt.
