Update... Cobb Access Port

Okay, I suck... I am very aware of this... I have been too busy to keep this up and running as planned... so I will at least put an update today... then we'll see how long it takes to get the next one up...

Anyway, in August I got my Cobb Access Port - this remaps the ECU in the car to provide a bit more power. About 15% more power... it also allows you to reflash the ECU for different scenarios - like good mileage, 91 octane, 93 octane, valet mode, etc. Over the Xmas holidays I got 29.5 MPG on a road trip - EPA says 27 for the car on the highway. I'll take it!! The performance flash puts me up from 226 to 260hp - which is 0-60 in 5.7s stock to 0-60 in 4.9s and 13.9 on 1/4. My next upgrade will be a exhaust upgrade that will put me up to 290hp and 0-60 in about 4.6s and 13.4 on 1/4. (the link above has dyno graphs)
