I am glad I saw this thread, I was about to get GIAC 2 put on my car but I might get this now instead. A friend's shop here local recommended COBB to me as well. I assume the stage 2 maps still aren't available? I am installing catless DP's within the next few days or so and I want to run GIAC stage 2 types of numbers. I also don't want to buy O2 sims... but I think this COBB AP is supposed to be able to disable those CEL codes right?

TIA to a hopefully happy customer soon

GIAC tune is a great tune IMO, If it was only user tunable or at least user flashable it would be perfect for me. The Cobb seems to have everything I'm looking for or at least will have everything i'm looking for once they get so of the small issues fixed, well at least in my case. as of now I don't believe Cobb Stg 1 supports DP, but I maybe mistaken.

It will work but if the DP are catless it will throw a code on stage 1. IF you can deal with the CEL it will perform just as good.

You can get a DP fix from one of the other companies temporarily supposedly.

Man speaks the truth from personal experience as he just ripped on my dci/downpipes/exhaust/fmic cobb 1 car 2 days ago. All I saw was tire smoke and a nice pop on the 3-4 shift lol.

Must admit, my car sounds damn good lol.

In agreement with Alan L., the boost on the Cobb Stage 1 93 octane map does come on very strong and very early, and seems to taper off as you get in to higher revs...

Found a few vague references to this in other posts. What exactly did you do to reset the trans? Thanks

maybe im confuzed there is a shift at 7k rpm and then another at ~5k rpm.... the 2 dips in the tsp line is the throtle plate closeing on its own correct? you are not doing that it is doing that to control the over boost? and this log aside from the overboosting is fine isn't it.... also what is the boost limitation on stock turbo's if you can get 17lbs on a stock turbo why go rb's for 3lbs?

Just wondering, how come the COBB accessport for the Subbies is only $595 compared to the ~$800+ for BMW's? Is it because of the initial R&D and the fact that this just came to the BMW folks?

Per cobb, the bmw ecu took significantly longer to crack than any other brand that they off. I might be mistaken, but I believe in the 5+ times more than the others. Its price point is line with other flashes.

Update: I installed my AP today, the car took a while to start, and the first time it did the SES light stayed on. I shut down and restarted, since there no codes thrown, and she was good to go.

I always drive with DTC off, but to save my tires, I may have to rethink that. Stage 1 is beyond what I expected, and it will be struggle not to go to stage 2 when it becomes available. This is a fun little car, that just became even more so.

Yeah..my expectations were shattered with the Cobb AP. I never in a million years thought my car could be this fast while still being VERY smooth and driveable - combined with the extremely simple and intuitive install - it's a dream tune. The way this thing delivers the power is just jaw-dropping and grin-inducing. My only wish is that I had tires with more grip! I can smoke through all the lower gears up to 4 no problem.

Maybe a bit exaggerated but you get the idea. Strong tune.

I had the TC light flash on both the 1-2 and 2-3 shift this morning, my tires only have about 1k on them. I also discovered my cruise control isn't working, so I'll have to search and see if that is the norm. I hope not.

I popped three engines on my WRX so, I swore I wouldn't mod this car. I've held strong for the first six months but, the disappointing lag I now have after my latest service, combined with the reviews of the AP, are testing my resolve. I check the board almost daily hoping I'll see a reason not to pull the trigger. But no, it's just, "this thing is a beast now" and "the power is incredible and so smooth" and "after installing the AP, I now have better luck with the ladies and I just got a promotion..."

Okay, maybe I added the last one but, suffice to say you guys aren't making it easy to stay stock. Resistance is probably futile.
