FYI it's been proven that either alone is not nearly as powerful as a piggy plus Cobb combo, well jb4 g5 ISo plus Cobb

Performance in what way? Faster shifts? No, but the ATs are proven to be faster than their MT counterparts (especially out of a dig)

COBB is a complete flash that offers a more in-depth tune. It alters fueling tables, timing, boost targeting. You also get a significantly simpler setup for monitoring your tune/taking data logs. Piggys like the JB4 or PROcede are great, but they do not tune anywhere near as in-depth as a flash tune like COBB

This statement only holds true on the N54 & has kinda been proven to be false after Dzenno@PTF making the most powerful TT N54 utilizing a COBB based tune. His meth system is also self managed, which IMO is a better setup to begin with. The biggest difference is how the COBB vs. Piggys aim for a specific boost psi, but now with the N20 TMAP Sensor the COBB tune was able to fully utilize the RB turbos.

It'll probably go through the same progression as it did for the N54. 1st they'll release Stock Application, then add maps as they go along (Stage 1+ for Tune & FMIC, Stage 2 for Tune & DPs, Stage 2+ for Tune, FMIC & DPs; then eventually E85 & Race Gas Maps).

Benzy is correct. The initial release will be with Stage 1. Soon to follow will be Stage 1+FMIC, Stage 2, Stage 2+FMIC, ATP/ATR, etc.

Once you guys release race gas map is when I am all over Cobb. Do you have a rough time line of when that might be? All I need to add is FMIC.

Sweet, according to AR, Cobb is set to release the AP 12/12/12 for $850.00

Rob is that correct?
