    An access port plugs into your ECU and changes the mapping to a more aggressive tune. The factory tune is very conservative. This is a relatively safe mod. You WILL notice the difference after.
    Google Cobb Access Port to find out more info.

    The Cobb AP has an "economy" map for commuting if you're worried about mpg. You can then change it back to Stage 1 to play.
