I am sorry, but our software only allows us to calibrate cars with the Cobb AP.

Sorry guys, but unfortunately we never did a pull with the car running the Cobb OTS Stage 2 map. The owner was running the stock map beforehand (was at the dealer the day earlier) and so that is what we used as the baseline. We will be tuning a stage 2+ 1M soon, I believe this Saturday, so I will try to make sure that we capture the gains over the OTS map for you.

For what it's worth, my 135i picked up 28whp and 40wtq over the Cobb Stage 1 Aggressive V301 map. Power gains over the OTS map will vary from car to car and will depend upon a number of variables. For example, if you tell us you consistently use high quality 93 octane fuel from Shell every time you fill up then we can calibrate your car taking that into consideration. If you tell us you travel a lot and may come across inconsistent fuel quality every now and then we will design the maps to be more dynamic/conservative so your car isn't at risk if you encounter bad fuel.

We are going to be exploring a 100 octane custom race gas tune for my 135i soon as well and possibly dive into what can be done with E85. Expect to hear more from us soon!
