    The Cobb accessport does not support the mods your car is currently running. If it came with the Cobb accessport I would hope the previous owner had the vehicle pro-tuned for those modifications or at least already had the stage 2+cai map loaded on the car.

    You need to spend today google searching tuners in your area and get that car in for a dyno tune before driving it anymore.

    if they are an awd tuning shop they shouldnt have a problem with the accessport. If not they can un install it, tune the car open source then you can sell the accessport.

    Dont drive the car, contact a tuning shop who can tune the car..

    If the car has been OTS Stage 2 tuned and your still running an FMIC and CAI it needs tuned.

    Because the map you're using is designed for the OE intake and OE TMIC.

    Run a line from the compressor to the wastegate until you can get retuned.
