    Personally would skip the cobb accessport.. You can install a turbo back exhaust and get a protune for cheaper than purchasing an accessport you dont necessarily need.

    Accessports are awesome down the mod path a ways when multiple maps for different fuels come into play, but for just stage 2 it can be a waste.

    for most users.. plug, flash, and go is nice. Don't have to download software, find the correct maps online. Buy the maps. Buy the cable. Figure out how to use a few different software programs...

    Accessport is to Mac as Romraider is to Windows in my opinion.

    That was my point as well. Im a firm believer in a protune and that would mean $550 for an accessport + $300-$500 on a protune which doesn't make sense at the Stage 2 level unless big growth is in the plans. OTS maps are cool and convenient just not the best option in my opinion

    You're all wrong. Who needs tuning?

    A power goal is a good start.

    Very true. Goals are everything. And set a fairly firm goal. Otherwise you may start down the path of least resistance and end up paying more in the long run
