They have excellent customer service and a very fast turnaround - do not worry. Do a search on AccessECU and I think you will find a ton of threads on peoples experience with Cobb.

They are not great on returning emails. they have good customer service if you call them. They were a respected tuner here in texas but then they moved to Utah, you dont have to worry about not getting you ecu back from what I have heard the turn around has been pretty fast.

Cobb is a large tuner they are just less talked about because most of their tunning is done in house they dont like to just sell parts they like to install and tune it safely.

oh, since they haven't replied my email yet, can i ask you a question?
if i wanna re flash my ecu from stage 1 to stage 2, is it free or do i have to pay another $400?

and what kind of turbo back do you think is perfect w/ cobb tuning?

thanks :)

cobbs turbo back woud be perfect for cobb tunning :D

They sell 2 versions of the ecu reflash one is just a reflash. the second which is about 100 more comes with a module that they can load different reflashes onto or email you the maps and you can reflash the ecu yourself. It does NOT allow you to tune the map it only allows you to load a premade map. So if you upgrade some parts and cobb has a off the shelf reflash listed for those parts they can email it to you and you can flash the ecu yourself free of charge.

now back to the turbo backs, as long as a ehaust is of the same diameter it will flow about the same amount of air so the tunning will not be much different. The only way the tune would be any different is if you got it dyno tuned but since you are just gettin a off the shelf map you wont notice and difference in performance between turbo backs sicne the off the shelf reflashes are tuned to be very safe.

No, you do not have to pay $400 again - I think they charge $20 - $30... I don't remember exactly. Soon they will be coming out with the AccessPort which will allow you to do the reflash for free at home. Check out their website for details. Any turboback will work for a Stage 2 as long as fulfills the requirement of a turboback. Their website also has their contact numbers, so I would just give them a call.

Oh yeah you can go ahead and get the access ecu now if you want the access port later they will just charge you the difference in price so you wont be losing any money.

No I didnt think my stock wagon with a dented bumper and for sale written all over it would do to well against the likes of gilly at hin. Even when my car was modded I still wouldnt have entered.
