My set up is only the intake lol. Do you think it would be worth it for me to get the cobb intake? I do plan on going stage 2. And eventually a custom tune.

The AccessPort is the best reason to go COBB! I will cover that in an additional review.
funny story, this whole time i thought i was on stage 1+ 93 cuz i didn't see a specific "1+" when i first got the ap. I just saw 91 and 93. So i assumed 91 was stage 1 and 93oct was stage 1+ lol. Tonight i ran the actual 1+ with my evoMS intake. It was def. a little jittery but still pulled harder then just stage 1. Also went from 218 g/s to 220 g/s.

What are the trim % readings on this intake?

Mine are all over the place, but I'm currently working with COBB to see what it might be. LTFT at idle is around .95 but it jumps up to 1.15 while cruising. I'm not sure if it's installer error (me), bad gas, or something else yet.

Probably a dumb question, but when installing the silicone reducer elbow onto the turbo itself, how far down should I push it? I noticed some metal ridges on the side of the turbo housing (one on the passenger side facing the fender). Should I stop there and tighten the worm clamp, or jam it on as far as I can?

You can check trim levels via vcds, I'd be interested to know the readings, oem intake is +- 5% some aftermarket intakes are much higher and can cause cell. The tube should rest against the lip of the turbo, it ensures there's enough turbo to have the c-clamp hold.

Thanks. It sounds like I might need to pull the hose up a bit and re-tighten the worm clamp. It's just frustrating because it seems pretty straightforward but I've made several attempts so I'm still wondering if it's some other issue.

Forgive my ignorance, but are the LTFT readings off of the Accessport different than what I'd see using VCDS? I thought the .95 - 1.15 correspond to 95% - 115%.

Never used Cobb before but if your getting a variance of 15% trim then that's very bad. I couldn't run something with greater than 8%. Unfortunately many poorly designed intakes for mk6 run this way. There are threads on it and how to check it, you can find them with a quick search.

This helped me understand it more: http://www.autoserviceprofessional.c...for-you?Page=1

Page 2 talks about measuring fuel trim with the ltft and stft numbers.

This is helpful, thanks! If COBB doesn't have any suggestions I will likely swap back in my stock airbox tonight and reset the trims to see if that resolves the issue.

All of my data logs show a max difference of 99-105

Most are 99-102 in variance

Good to know. I'm going to reinstall the stock air box tonight and inspect the COBB to see if there might be an issue with the intake itself. I'm 85% confident that the install is correct.

I got my stock airbox reinstalled. In the process of removing the COBB intake, I re-checked all connections and didn't see any issues. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary inspecting the pipe or hoses either.

After switching back to a Stage 1 map and driving for a few miles, my LTFT numbers started going down. I drove for a few more miles and it never went above 1.00. As mentioned before, LTFT would swing wildly with the COBB intake installed, and sat around 1.15-1.20 with any throttle applied or while cruising.

I'm going to check in with COBB to see if they have any other suggestions. Unfortunately, with family/job duties, I don't have a lot of time to tinker with my car. If COBB isn't able to pinpoint any issue, I'll likely try to return it to the online shop.

Is anyone else running Stage 1+ and had issues with fuel trims? I'm wondering if there's some issue with those particular maps.
