    • COBB Announces Porsche 911 Turbo Accesport and Accestuner support for 997.1 Turbo and GT2 - 997.2 application / support on the way

      As many of you may already know, COBB is now offering Accessport and Accesstuner support for the 997.1 Turbo and GT2. We would like to take a moment to formally introduce our product and its capabilities. Lets start with the Accessport. Our current support covers the 997.1 Turbo and GT2 with additional 997.2 Turbo support coming soon. We're continuing to investigate 991 Turbo support along with expanding to various other models within the Porsche lineup. As part of a special release program, the Porsche Accessports are available exclusively through our Certified Porsche Protuners.




      The purpose behind this is to ensure our earliest customers are working with performance tuning facilities that we know are familiar with the vehicles and are able to provide the highest levels of customer service that the COBB experience is synonymous with. This collaboration also allows us to gather the various Porsche ECU ROM files as quickly as possible to further expand Accessport support. The special release program has proven to be an invaluable tool and we are happy to announce the release of the Porsche Accessport to all COBB Authorized Dealers and the COBB Website is coming very soon!



      Accessport Features:

      Simple Installation: Everything is included for the simple installation you can do in your driveway! Intuitive on-screen instructions identify your exact vehicle, saves stock vehicle data, and displays available OTS maps.
      Change Maps: Store up to 100 maps from our OTS map database or from your favorite COBB tuner and quickly switch between them for any need.
      Vehicle Upgrade Support: As you continue to modify your car, Accessport maps can be used to optimize performance upgrades. Changing the map can be done in less than 1 minute in your driveway.
      In Car Mount: The Accessport can be mounted in vehicle to allow you to monitor the performance data.
      Data Logging: Record multiple data channels simultaneously for in-depth evaluation of engine performance. Stores up to 1 hour of continuous data.
      Gauges: Use your Accessport as a gauge to monitor boost or any other live information, directly from the ECU.
      Trouble Codes: Read engine trouble codes to diagnose issues. Clear them when resolved. Prevent expensive trips to the dealership.
      Full Uninstall: Using the Uninstall option will completely remove our programming from the cars ECU. It is then able to be re-installed after a dealer visit or on another vehicle.





      The Accessport connects to your vehicles OBDII port and is able to reprogram the factory ECU with a performance calibration file. During the installation process, the Accessport will identify and save the factory data from the vehicles ECU. That information remains stored on the Accessport and can also be backed-up on your computer using our Accessport Manager software. Should you ever need to return your vehicle to stock , its as simple as completing the Uninstall function with the Accessport. After the vehicle is identified, you will choose a calibration file that is applicable to your vehicle and modification level. We will offer an assortment of Off The Shelf (OTS) maps that will be preloaded onto the Accessport. You can also choose to have your car custom tuned by a Protuner who will use our Accesstuner Pro software.


      COBB OTS Maps :
      Stage 1 maps are calibrated to be used on a completely stock vehicle but still provide a significant increase in performance.
      Stage 2 maps are to be used with an upgraded exhaust. We recommend using the stock airbox and upgraded intercoolers at this level.
      Stage 3 maps will support our COBB 1000cc injectors on cars that are using E85.

      Non-Performance:
      Valet Mode
      Anti-theft Mode
      Installed Stock Mode

      We are continuously working to refine and perfect our tunes, those updates will be available to customers at no charge.

      2008 911 Turbo OTS Map Power gains

        We are looking into supporting other Porsche vehicles, 991 and 996 will be investigated however we don't have a timeline on either right now.

        Got this and ran stage1, loved it! Installation is super simple and straight forward. Installing exhaust and IC's and will run stage2 maps until I can do the 1000cc injector upgrade and go E85!

        Pretty sure we have a bunch of people who sell the Cobb AP. It's a matter of shipping overseas.

        I got mine from maseengineering, Steve even brought it to the UK so I didn't have to get hit by Swedish custom and tax fees.

        When/If I buy stuff from the US Sweden will add 10% custom fees on price incl shipping, and then 25% VAT on top of that, adding a total of 37,5% on all my online US purchases Click here to enlarge

        Honestly most of them suck (and not in a good way), but yes I haven't seen any place on this planet with so many pretty girls as Stockholm.

        Have had colleges from CA here and if they go to a bar or nightclub, they are pretty much stunned by the local sights...

        Still 57% income tax is a tough pill to swallow...

        Maybe I should visit Stockholm? I don't intend to pay 57% income tax. I don't like taxes period to be honest.
