Generally speaking Stage2 calibrations support vehicles with free flowing exhaust with at least one high-flow catalytic converter in the exhaust stream. Stage3 calibrations are usually intended for supporting performance hardware using an upgraded turbo.

The measured power numbers also depends on the chassis dyno used. We employ a Mustang load-based chassis dyno which will increase the load put on the vehicle as vehicle speed increases to simulate real world driving conditions (increased vehicle speeds increase aerodynamic forces-drag on the vehicle). Dynojets and other inertial dynos do not do this so they tend to overstate higher RPM power numbers IMO.

Ideally, we would like to see some customers testing their vehicles before and after AccessPORT installation on a chassis dyno so some external verification can come from someone other than COBB. Once numbers come in from other external testers, we can start comparing power numbers.

Much of what we do is respond to community demand. If a good number of people in the community all share the same hardware combination, then it make sense for our calibration team to focus efforts on generating calibrations for that combination. We usually correspond with the community through our forums where we will host polls to assess this information. We will be sure to let you know once some polls are up.
