Mixing maps

So, I just got my maps today from Jarrad at pdx tuning. On their website it says the following
You can not and must not mix our maps with anyone else's maps. If you load our map as a base map, or as a reflash you can damage your motor if you load someone else's map as a real time change over the top. The same goes for running one of our maps as a real time change over anything other than our base or reflash map. We can not emphasize enough how important this is. Due to the way the Access Port works it is critically important that maps from different vendors are never mixed.


I understand this means dont change to a cobb map in realtime but can I still use the ap's lc and ffs? Do I need to delete the cobb ots maps from my ap? I would like to keep them just in case I have to go back to stage 1. I guess what Im asking is does this mean the only feature of the ap I cant mix is the cobb ots maps.

Meaning you MUST reflash the car to the PDX tune and not eff with it in ATR I assume. NOT a realtime flash.

No, don't delete any maps from your AP.

For giggles, reflash the stock tune for a few mins and let it run, then reflash to the PDX tune.

Alright so, I logged the maps I was sent and Im no expert but it looks like a have a potential knock situation. On top of that Im still overboosting which was the reason I went with an e-tune over the cobb ots maps. I sent pdx a datalog and expressed my concerns. In return they sent me another map that was supposed to be safe. This map had some other dudes name on it unlike the first ones they sent that had mine on them. This makes me think they are playing russian roulet with maps on my car. Anyway, this map wouldnt even load on my ap. It said "unable to load map file. invalid base map file. please verify vehicle and vendor of map file." which leads me to belive this map isnt even for my vehicle. Im very dissatisfied thus far. Can any of you take a look at my datalog and tell me what you think. Im new to tuning and dont know much. I would appreciate a second opinion. Please only people experienced with tuning that know what they are looking at with ap datalogging. I dont know how or even if I can post it up on here but, I can send it via email. Thank you in advance.

Post the datalog up on here: csv file or an excel file.

These are the frustrations that come with e-tunes

Yeah, should i be logging in a different gear? boost targets are supposed to be 17.5 on main map and 12-13 on low boost map. Also the paramaters are what was suggested by pdx.

You have a new log after the new reflash? Up there were the 2 from b4? Right?

3rf gear is fine as long as you don't lose grip..... and as long as it's on a level surface.

Yeah I have a new map that I havent logged yet. They sent it to me today because I was concerned about knock and still overboosting. Ill log it tonight. Do these logs look safe? Ive heard some knock is ok but, I dont really know. All I know is what I read. Im learning as I go.

No knock is ideal.... Some knock is unacceptable IMHO. Put up the new log after the reflash
