    stage 1 review

    So I just got my accessport finaly on my car with 111k and after almost 3 years of ownership so I decided to do my own personal review of it.
    mind you my car needs an air fuel ratio sensor so my data logs looked like absolute crap, but come on...who cant help but play with it once you get it?

    I don't think its helping my fuel trimming (thankfully my exhaust does smell like sweet fuel)

    first time out, overboosting on stage 1 ACN91 by about 2.4...tried LWG and got within boost target range so then I decided to log and get a better overall feel for this thing...boosted to 18.4 again but noticed my clutch slips and the data logs show peak boost in conjunction with the slippage so im hoping its just clutch issue. I did burn it quite a bit today trying to rush through traffic after doing a lunch run for work and didn't realize I did until after getting out of the car
    so im giving it a few weeks before 3rd gear WOT again to see if any glaze works itself off and all is well

    so I have to say im absolutely amaze with how smooth boost feels now but I am disappointed abviously due to the slippage

    that is all!

    Actually if someone could explain in a bit further detail of what to lookf for in possible knock situations then what cobbs website shows id appreciate it

    my DAM is 1 through the log by the way but showing feedback knock and fine knock learning at full (over for me) boost. I don't want to risk doing another WOT until the A/F sensor gets here and installed just incase its screwing it up

    ya I gotta go back into my AP. I left only those on but for some reason it logged a bunch of others as well. my DAM is locked at 1 which if I remember correctly is pretty much exactly where you want it, but fine knock shows multiple corrections around peak boost which I don't know is clutch related as the map isn't supposed to boost that high? or if its due to the bad A/F sensor
    ive got a basic understanding of what im looking at though
    I feel special lol

    lol those oldies must be fast asleep ;]

    dam I jus remembered my turbo inlet is torn too so maybe that's causing the overboost and the overboost is causing the clutch to slip



    oh te fun of having an old car
    worth it though

    Set it to the low waste gate map, then run it again.
    If you don't have it download it.

    that's what I have now. the first run peaked at 17.4 target is 16 and then the other run was back at 18.4. same as the normal wastegate

    maybe the tune still needs to break in? if that's a thing, with learning the fuel trims and what not

    No not yet.
    I'll wait til my stock one wears out.
    That and my factory brakes, will need replacing.
    Right now I got to finish my bushings, and fix the clunk.


    You should start a build thread, always a good thing.

    That will result in a lean condition in open loop. I would fix that ASAP. There is no O2 sensor correction in openloop.

    And open loop is during WOT correct? If I remember correctly?
    And so the sensor probably isn't much of a problem other then not being able to monitor the A/F ratio correctly?

    I was thinking about it but I don't know how much longer I'm going to have this car and I'm pretty much done with the mods because I want to put my money into an affordable monthly payment on the next. Was thinking the 4th gens but I just got the accessport, don't want to have to buy another one so I might stick with a later model 3rd...latest with whichever doesn't have the engine troubles

    You're also doing the exedy oem replacement right? So it should hold up for stage 2 levels with no problem as long as you're not launching the car and burning it away?
    I swear since I bought the car the clutch has been binding. Just feels like crap. Like when you depress the clutch it doesn't feel like you push through the friction point ( where you depress and you feel pressure then to the floor it feels like the pressure is gone) mine is just stiff the whole way through

    Alright I know that this is very cheap and one might say "ghetto rigged" but maybe I could use exhaust wrap to attempt to seal the inlet better? If it works for exhaust leaks maybe it could hold up for a few weeks until I can get the perrin inlet
