What is Map?

Map stands for “More Aggressive settings“, provides large gains in torque and horsepower while maintaining a high degree of safety.

The AccessPORT reprograms the tuning parameters inside the factory Engine Control Unit (ECU) using map files, which contain specially written instructions for the AccessPORT to follow during the reprogramming process. A map file can contain information for any number of different modifications or enhancements to a vehicle, ranging from a race map for a heavily modified vehicle to an economy map for a stock vehicle. Through the use of the AccessPORT and different map files the ECU can be reprogrammed to accommodate virtually any vehicle configuration.

COBB Tuning provides several preloaded maps for common power modifications. These maps are known as Base Maps. Each base map is dyno developed and rigorously tested in multiple COBB Tuning facilities across the country these tests cover the spectrum of altitude, temperature, humidity, octane and fuel quality variables to ensure proper calibration and performance wherever the car is driven.

Map ChangeSince all base maps and custom tune maps are stored in the AccessPORT, you can change maps any time you want. Switch to a race gas map for that extra performance at the track. Go to the Fuel Economy map for those long boring drives. Load the Valet map to keep revs below 3,200 when you drop your car off with the parking attendant. The Anti-Theft map does not allow the car to start, keeping it safe in suspect areas or during extended parking.
