    Flashing the ECU for increased performance is just the start of what the AccessPORT is capable of. Set the AccessPORT to Performance mode to capture 0-60MPH times, ¼ Mile times and Trap Speeds. Switch over to Live Data and choose a gauge to monitor, such as; air/fuel ratio, intake air temperature, throttle position, spark advance, wastegate duty, MAF voltage, boost and many more. Turn on the new Datalogging feature and capture data across mutiple channels while you drive for detailed analysis of your engine’s performance. Use the Troubleshooting mode to diagnose issues by reading the factory codes and resetting the system once the issues have been resolved.

    The AccessPORT can be used to eliminate separation anxiety for those times you are away from your car. Protect your investment when out on the town by quickly loading the Valet map to prevent the engine from revving above 3,200 rpm. Load the Anti-Theft map when you park to make it impossible to start. And in the event the car must be returned to the stock configuration, the AccessPORT can be completely removed and the ECU restored to its factory condition.

    COBB AccessPORT Installation (Reference Subaru) 


    The AccessPORT comes with the most up-to-date software and map files available at the time of shipment. However, it is possible that updated software and/or map files have been made available since the time of shipment. Therefore, the recommended procedure is to connect the AccessPORT to the AP Manager software and download the latest software and map files for the target vehicle.

    Getting Started

    1. Insert the key into the vehicle’s ignition and leave it in the OFF position.

    2. Locate the Test Mode connectors. Impreza and Forester models will have this located under the driver’s side dash to the left of the steering column. The Legacy and Outback models will have this located on the passenger side. With the connectors located, enable Test Mode by plugging the two
    connectors into each other.

    3. Connect the small end of the provided USB cable to the mini-USB port on the back of the OBD connector.

    4. Plug the OBD connector into the vehicle’s OBD-II port.

    5. Plug the large end of the USB cable into the standard USB port on the underside of your AccessPORT. At this point the AccessPORT will power up and present the installation menu after approximately 20-30 seconds

    6. Select [Install] from the AccessPORT menu by pressing the [OK] button to proceed with installation. Below is a diagram of the AccessPORT’s keypad function.

    Before installing the AccessPORT on the vehicle, it is important to verify that the vehicle is adequately prepared for the installation process. Since the AccessPORT uses the vehicle’s battery for power and the ECU reprogramming process requires adequate battery power as well, it is critical to verify that the vehicle’s battery has a good charge. This can be done through the use of a battery charger/conditioner or by driving the vehicle for a period of time prior to installation to allow the alternator to recharge the battery. Furthermore, please ensure that all in-car electronic devices are turned off to reduce power draw on the battery. This includes car stereos, video screens, GPS units, radar detectors, interior and exterior vehicle lights, and any other electronic device that uses the car battery for power.
