    Also if I get a Cobb tuner would it fix my low idle/ other problem at boost? Thats the question im asking myself. IF it wouldn't that would be an expensive 500 bucks.

    The Accessport is only a device for loading maps onto your car and monitoring data. If you get a pro tuner to design a map for your car they can load it onto that device and you can flash it to your car too. I would think your best bet would be to contact the guy that did all the modifications and get a full list of what is on there (because we all like to keep lists) and then go from there. With an aftermarket turbo, there are really no off the shelf maps that can go on the car. I would probably take a road trip to the nearest tuner shop (even if it is not that close) and have them take a look at the car and give you some advice.

    No prob...I don't want to get you paranoid, and make you not excited about your new purchase. It is a beautiful car and is most likely ok, but (I would) you would probably feel better knowing exactly what you have on your hands before something goes wrong. Unfortunately sometimes when people mod their cars they offload a bunch of parts before they sell them and don't consider the people that will be buying them. These cars are finicky and things can go wrong fast if they are not cared for.

    Royal purple would be fine...just follow the specs that the car calls for. I used royal purple for a while but now use amsoil. Lot's of differing opinions on oil (motul, reline, amsoil all popular), but as long as you follow factory specs you will be golden.

    To datalog, yes. But you'd want to get the reflash connector (there's a drop-down menu on the right side of the page), as well, in case you decide you want to go the e-tune route or need to pull/modify the map for any reason.

    I like the front end of the cars like mine more so then the newer ones also. It looks "beefier".. just cleaned my MAF, about to test run and see if it changed anything
