cobb accessport major issues with dastek
perks of buying a used car..ha ha please help. read the email i sent to both cobb and dastek
I bought a used 2002 wrx which I was told was stock. I put a cobb access port on the car,flashed and ran no problems. a year later(during the year I did flash to different stage maps with all supporting mods) I go to street tune on the cobb and it worked for about 3 weeks and the car hit the bag,turns over and dies everytime. we decided that it’s the ecu,that it needs to be replaced(or try to hard reset ). go to pull back the carpet where the ecu is at and find out the the previous owner put a old style piggyback dastek ecu. its two metal square shaped boxes,one larger than the other. that was a huge red flag,may be the reason why my car is dead now(but it also makes no sense that I could marry and flash the cobb while the dastek was hooked up). im trying to figure out how to unmarry this dastek from the ecu,can I just unsplice the piggyback,un marry the cobb and hard reset the ecu. this issue at hand here is that I was able to flash fine with the cobb access port to first stage 1,then to stage 2,then to stage 2 (street tune).I was even able to flash back to stock to try and rule out the custom stage 2 real time flash. still no luck with the car,turns over but dies every time. we have ruled out any other issues that may cause it to start then die(battery,starter,alternator,and even put in a brand new maf,and used other wrx mafs from a few friends of mines car to rule out the new maf was bad) all those items check out fine. I need to know what direction I need to go to get my car back on the road.
