How do you install an ECU tune with the Cobb Accessport?
In years past, to install upgraded software on your Porsche's ECU, the DME would have to be opened up to replace the "chip" to have access to custom tunes or you would have to pull the DME from your car to have the ECU bench flashed. Today, using Cobb's Accessport, you can simply change your ECU tune in minutes via your Porsche's OBDII port. The Cobb Accessport stores ECU tune data and with the provided OBDII cable, anyone can easly change between performance tunes and original factory programming at will.
Are Cobb off the shelf (OTS) tunes safe?
Many manufacturers detune their cars to allow for incremental increases in power with new model years that can be added through simple software updates. Porsche is no different with their factory ECU tunes that leave a lot on the table. It's easy to see how turbocharged Porsche engines can easily find increased horsepower and torque with a simple ECU flash to overwrite the factory DME programming to increase boost levels. However, even normally aspirated engines can benefit through changes to fuel and ignition timing tables. Cobb includes multiple programs (maps) that can easily be changed out with the Accessport including those for higher octane fuels that allow you to unlock the potential of your Porsche engine. That said, Cobb Tuning is very conservative with their off the shelf tunes to deliver increased performance without compromising the longevity of your Porsche engine. Each tune is rigorously tested before being made available. If and when updates are released, they are made available free of charge and can be loaded onto your Cobb Accessport V3.
Does installing a Cobb tune void my Porsche's warranty?
Whenever you modify your Porsche, you run the risk that you might void your car's warranty. When you take your Porsche to the track, there is a chance that you might suffer an engine failure or some other damage that likewise won't be covered under warranty. Same goes with ECU tuning. Technically, installing a Cobb Tuning ECU tune will void your warranty, however Cobb's off the shelf tunes have proven themselves to be a safe upgrade. Using Cobb Tuning's Accessport, it is very easy to switch between different tunes. You can also uninstall the Cobb Tune with the Accessport, restoring the original factory "tune" or programming, in instances where you need to take your car in for service. The process takes just a few minutes by plugging in your Cobb Accessport to your Porsche's OBDII port.
