BOXERFEST 2016 RECAP

Though the day began quite wet, Subaru enthusiasts from the Mid-Atlantic area still arrived to FedEx Field in droves for the third annual event. This event has something for everyone – autocross, an exhaust competition, a vendor row, delicious food trucks, and a raffle where sponsors offer up thousands of dollars worth of product.

BMW N54 POWER GAINS

When you hear someone mention “Sick Gainz” it’s typically in the neighborhood of at least one “Do you even lift, bro?”s. But, there’s something even more deserving of the sick gain description. The gains I’m talking are on your N54 powered BMW and the only supplement required is the Accessport.

SUBARU OTS MAPS: HIGH WASTEGATE, LOW WASTEGATE, NORMAL WASTEGATE

The COBB Tuning Accessport comes with Off The Shelf (OTS) maps designed to support any vehicle of a specific make and model throughout all climates and elevations. For the Subaru platform, most vehicles have a wastegate option that can be chosen to better fit your car for its specific conditions.

FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER KIT FOR STI 2008-2014

Looking for an effective solution to eliminate inconsistent power delivery from your 2008-2014 STI? Look no further than the all new COBB Tuning Front Mount Intercooler. The factory top mount intercooler can easily be over worked and overheated due to its size and location.

MAZDASPEED/MPS OPTIMAL UPGRADE PATH

Every vehicle in the COBB lineup is designed for the enthusiast from the factory. With that in mind, it’s no surprise there are tons of different aftermarket options for every COBB supported vehicle. As one of the first mainstream direct injected turbo cars, the Mazdaspeed platform gets a lot of aftermarket love. There are so many parts available!

FORD FIESTA ST COBB STAGE 3 POWER FIGURES

The Ford Fiesta ST is a nimble package from the factory that’s a lot of fun to drive. More power makes it even better! This can be accomplished with bolt-ons anyone can install with basic hand tools. Check out Danny from RallyWays loading up the dyno with his COBB Stage 3 equipped FiST!

PORSCHE 991.2 CARRERA DEVELOPMENT: TURBOS FOR ALL!

The 2017 Carrera S marks Porsche’s first turbocharged non-Turbo model Carrera S. The outgoing 3.8L naturally aspirated motor is replaced with a smaller 3.0L motor with two turbochargers bolted to the sides.

ADVERTISING POWER GAINS AS A PERCENTAGE

We’ve recently been asked why we display our power gains as a percentage rather than actual horsepower and torque values. The most straightforward answer is – simplicity. There are many variables when it comes to obtaining a power figure.

PUERTO RICO 1/2 MILE – PORSCHE 991 TURBO RECORD SET BY PREDATOR PERFORMANCE/COBB TUNING

Airstrip racing has grown increasingly more popular over the past few years. With dozens of events scattered across the United States, we’ve seen many records broken and speeds that enthusiasts once could only dream of seeing in a road-going car. This desire for speed is also shared with our Carribean neighbors down in Puerto Rico.

MITSUBISHI EVO ACCESSPORT NEW FEATURES AND 2015 FINAL EDITION SUPPORT

COBB Tuning is excited to announce another update for the Mitsubishi Accessport V3. USDM 2015 Evolution X Final Edition vehicles can now take advantage of the power, control, and convenience of the Accessport that earlier model year Evolution X enthusiasts have been enjoying.

DOES MY MAZDASPEED FUEL SYSTEM NEED AN UPGRADE?

Adding modifications to any vehicle can alter the way it functions. With that in mind, it is important to have the appropriate tuning to accommodate these modifications. Sometimes there are mechanical limitations present where tuning alone is not enough. The Mazdaspeed High Pressure Fuel Pump (also called the cam-driven fuel pump) is a great example of the need for additional modifications to support the power adders you may already have installed.

NISSAN GT-R: NEW V700 (BETA) OFF THE SHELF MAPS

The COBB GT-R platform has benefited from several new features over the last year. Previously, many of these new features were only available via a custom tune using Accesstuner Race yourself or through visiting a Protuner. Not any more! The new v700 Off The Shelf (OTS) maps not only make significantly more power than previous revisions, they also include COBB Custom Safety features!

FSWERKS BUILDS A FASTER '15 FORD FOCUS ST

Raffi Kazanjian—the man behind FSWerks—was able to seduce another 80 lb-ft of torque from an engine just shy of 2,000 cc worth of pistons and cylinders. The answer is simpler than you think and has a little to do with the more efficient FSWerks intercooler and better-flowing intake and exhaust and a lot to do with the COBB Tuning-modified ECU.

MOTOIQ - PROJECT FOCUS ST

In our last segment of Project Focus ST, we reviewed some parts from Cobb Tuning for our car. To get a nice safe boost in power, we got a Cobb Stage III upgrade which includes a V3 Access port ECU flasher, larger more efficient intercooler, larger charge pipes, a cold air intake, a larger freer flowing downpipe, a freer flowing exhaust and a heavy duty motor mount. In this installment it's time to put these parts to the test!

THE ACCESSPORT GETS A FACELIFT

There have been so many feature updates added to every platform since the launch of the V3 Accessport. With that in mind, we decided the version 3 could use a bit of updating on the outside! Below is a comparison between the new Accessport with improved lens and start-up screen and the former look.

INTERPRETING DYNO RESULTS

How much power does it make? It’s a good question. Although the answer typically results in an argument among enthusiasts it does help us gain perspective on just how capable a car might be. More importantly, knowing how much power a certain modification makes helps determine whether it’s worth our hard earned cash.

UPDATING YOUR ACCESSPORT

With all the updates of late, we wanted to remind everyone just how easy it is to update your Accessport Firmware or map files (or both!) to enjoy new features or calibration changes! The first step is to download and install Accessport Manager on your Mac or PC
