Default Just put Cobb Stage 1 on my T

I know I'm late to this party, but thought I'd share anyway. My dealership handled everything, Picked up my car at my house on Monday, Ordered the access port, sent out ECU and installed when is was back and dropped the car back at my house Friday morning. I could have saved some money doing it myself but having my dealer involved seemed smart.

I only have about 30 miles in the car since the tune but Wow! Easy on the gas and it feels stock. Tip in the throttle a little more and off it goes. The power comes on fast, linear and smooth but it comes on fast. Very happy so far!

slvr993 any plans to put it on the dyno so we can get some more data on the baseline and delta between Cobb stage 1? Dynojet is what I prefer but Mustang Dynos work also (just read a bit lower).

Do you mind posting what your dealership charged for this service. I like that idea a lot. Thanks.

The dealer charged $2250 which included the cost of the access port, removing and shipping ECU, reinstalling ECU, and doing the flash and test drive. They literally picked my car up on Monday and brought it back to me on Friday morning and they handled everything in between. Best money I've spent on any of my toy cars. Just took it for a run this morning and got to really wind it out. Car felt amazing.

No plans at the moment to Dyno it. I may though later this spring.

Thanks for sharing. I am sure the car runs great and the price charged doesnĺt sound too bad either. I wouldnĺt want to mess with it and didnĺt know a dealer would take care of it.

Really a pretty good deal considering you have dealer support for the future.

I have a base '17, manual and want to do this so bad, I keep pulling back, (approach avoidance behavior) worried about warranty issues. My dealer is mod friendly, but I still have reservations. Talk me out of it and I'll do it when I swap back to summer tires.

Maybe check with your dealer and see if they will work a deal like they did for the OP. This way to have their support in the event of a warranty issue.

Is the car under warranty since the dealer made the changes? Thanks

A little confused here. I have a 991.2 GTS and as far as I know, a stage 1 doesn't require removing the ECU. It entails just driving for 15 minutes with the Access Port in "log mode", and then email the CSV log file to Cobb Tuning. In return, they email you back a custom ECU map that you upload via Access Port to the car...and you now have a stage 1 tuned car. What did I miss?

Well for a Cobb tune and most other stage 1 & 2 tunes you must first have the ECU cracked/opened so the mapping can be changed.

But isn't that done using the Access port? Every video on You Tube, like EVERY video, simply just shows plugging into the OBDII port and installing the tune directly to a stock car.

I still don't understand why the ECU was shipped off?
