The car just smells pretty bad on start-up and coming to stops.
    Cobb has very rich OL Fueling targets, so it's not surprising.

    I thought you said ECU (not ECO) tune earlier (misread it on my phone), so disregard the boost control solenoid comments.

    You and I are both running Protunes as well. That's prob the reason we don't get any smell.

    Just make sure that OTS map isn't a permanent choice OP and you'll be good. Like another poster stated, Cobb's OTS maps are def rich...but they do that for safety. It's better than running lean!
