Cobb Accessport Install and Use Guide



Basic guidance on how to install your Cobb Accessport, log data and how to get your Pro Tune on your GT car.

Most of this is adapted directly from Cobb. Here are some helpful links:

Accessport V3 User Manual



Begin by connecting your car to a battery charger. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! 

 

-You can “brick” your ECU if the battery dies while uploading a tune.

 


Taken directly from Cobb’s Quick Start Guide:

Install the Accessport on to your Car

When  you  first  install  the  Accessport  by  selecting  Install  from  the  main  menu,  the  Accessport  will  recognize  your  vehicle,  save  your  factory  ECU  data, load the proper maps from the background memory, and then flash your vehicle’s ECU with the map you select. This process ties (“marries”) the Accessport  to  your  vehicle  and  it  will  remain  this  way  until  you  uninstall  the  Accessport  from  the  vehicle.  An  Accessport  can  only  be  used  on  one  vehicle at a time.

 

If you have ordered a Pro Tune from Dundon, please keep in mind that your Pro Tune is NOT pre-loaded onto your Accessport. Please follow the steps below to receive your tune file.

 

Once the Accessport has been successfully installed, on the main screen of the device there is a “?” icon - About This Accessport. The screen should look like this:



 

Once there, move to the next screen with the direction keys. This screen will tell us the “Software Version” of the ECU. 

 

 

Once you have determined the Software Version, please send an email to Support@DundonMotorsports.com with the following:

 

First and Last Name:

Order Number (for Cobb and/or Pro Tune):

Year, Make, Model:

Any applicable modifications:

Software Version:

 

Please allow 24-48 hours for a response (often the response time will be quicker, but some tunes will need to be built) and we will send an initial tune file to work from. 

 

Once you receive the tune file, transfer the file to the Accessport via Cobb’s Accessport Manager software (download found here). Please reference the links at the top of this article for guidance on how to accomplish this.  



Data Logging and Revisions

As part of our Pro Tune service we offer a revision for your specific car and your specific climate. If you wish to take part in this, please log some driving data and send them to us by way of a reply to your original email request (that helps us keep track of things).

To log the data follow these instructions (see required parameters below):

https://cobbtuning.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PRS/pages/571899907/How+To+Datalog

 

Typically a 15-30 minute drive throughout the rev range with a couple of good 2nd and 3rd gear pulls to redline will provide us with everything needed to optimize your tune (again, please log all parameters). Once we receive the data log, we will turn the revision around in 24-48 hours and the installation process is the same as your initial file.
