I'm not 100% sure what makes something qualify as a "race file" (maybe 100 oct?) but they have the following maps available OTS

stage 0 (stock)

valet

anti theft

stage 1 (drop in filter recommended but not required)

Stage 1+ Bigsf intake (requires Cobb Cai)

Stage 1+ stock maf (requires cai with stock MAF housing. Cobbs intake has a larger diameter maf housing)

Stage 2 ( intake and full turbo back recommended but many run with just an intake and dp)

All stage maps are available in 91 or 93 octane

Race files are usually 100 octane maps or some kinda ethanol blend map.

What monitors should I be checking with my AP to determine if my car is running ok?

I like to watch knock in each cylinder as well as LTFT and STFT to make sure the AFR fuel trims are looking correct. I also watch AFR to make sure things are looking right there.

LTFT and STFT should be as close to 1.00 as possible. I was having fuel trim issues with my intake on the OTS maps, so I was seeing LTFTs as high as 1.15 at times. Protune fixed that right up.

AFR should be right around 14.7 at idle. 14.7:1 is stoichiometric and will spool the turbo the most quickly, but that AFR will get richer as you apply throttle to keep temperatures under control. For the most these numbers should look okay, but I like keeping an eye on them in relation to LTFT and STFT.

So I took mine in to the dealership today and they'll be doing an ECU update from a Nov. 2015 service campaign. Just curious if when I flash my stage 2 again after the update if it will incorporate the changes or if it will have been literally worthless having them update it. Does the update change the engine box code? Also, I didn't uninstall the Accessport before taking it in, hopefully that won't cause any problems when flashing it back to stage 2.

Yes! We are currently working on custom features for both the Mk6 and Mk7 GTIs. Both platforms are due to receive Launch Control, Flat Foot Shifting, and Traction Control.

So how does that work with a custom tune? Should I wait to get a custom tune until those features are out or could those be added on top of a custom tune?

Custom maps created by Protuners can typically be opened and re-saved in an updated version of Accesstuner in order to add newly released custom features.

Is Cobb considering/willing to do any promotions for people willing to change tuners?
Because y'all seem to get better everyday.

Wait... can you dumb this down a little bit more for me? If I understand and read into this correctly, the protune that we currently have will need to be redone by our tuner and then emailed back to us to reload into our Accessport? Did I get that right? Thanks in advance!
