    What are the limits of the Accessport?

    Hi everyone -

    I am about to start modding my '11 WRX hatch (technically I already did a kartboy shifter but I'm talking power mods) with an accessport. I really like the idea of having OTS tunes for many of the common mods and I don't mind paying a little extra for a quality part. Let's say I end up getting a mod that may not be sold by Cobb, though. Like on my last car I had a Snow Methanol Injection kit which I really liked. Can I have someone dyno tune using the Accessport?

    Thanks.

    If they have the Cobb software, they can create custom mapping for you.

    Yes, many tuners these days will only tune with the accessport. Seems to be the way many shops are tuning now. Another thing I want to touch on is that alot of people get caught up buying everything COBB, for say their stage 2 setup. You do not need to run a cobb downpipe to run their stage 2 map. Any aftermarket downpipe will work just fine with cobb's OTS maps as long as it utilizes the high flo cat in the downpipe. There are many other great companies out there that make excellent downpipes/catbacks/etc. for our cars. Like invidia, perrin, nameless, and so on. And these companies are usually cheaper than cobb. The only thing to worry about when it comes to going stage 2 is the intake if you choose to add an intake to your setup. Cobb only supports their SF intake and the AEM cold air intake with their OTS maps.

    Go to that maker's site and read the map notes for each map for your year. Also read the FAQs.
