I remember working on this a few months back. I thought we got it figured out. I'm emailing COBB to see if we can get it fixed.

Frankly, the stage 2 and stage 3 maps will just not be compatible with the stock exhaust. They were made on a car with a turbo back, and weren't intended to be ran on anything else. Running the incorrect map could lead to turbo failure, CELs, and drivability issues.

OK I changed it. Now it goes turbo->2.5" pipe->2.5" glasspack->2.5" pipe->stock clubman dual mufflers. Will that do? :P I know the stock stuff is only like 2" or maybe a little less but the only stock stuff I have now is after the split so that should add together to make well over 3" right?

It is all about the exhaust. Go back over this thread, scan for Alta's replies.

Stage two requires a 2 1/2" catless turbo back or a high flow cat and a 3" cat back.

Has anyone else had problems "uninstalling" the AccessPort from the ECU? I was told by Alta_Chris to uninstall to see the additional maps (after updating firmware, etc on computer). The AccessPort just sat there in "Identifying Car" field for over 30 minutes. I tried stopping and starting the car as well as simple removal of the key and putting it back into "start" mode. No luck on anything. I'm just trying to get S2, S3 maps onto my access port.

Sorry you're still having problems! If it's stuck on the "identifying vehicle" for more than a few seconds, unplug it and plug it back in. It's rare, but sometimes the AP can get hung up on that window.

Hello, the AccessPORT comes preloaded with a stage 1 91 octane map. The K&N intake has given some problems in the past, which can't be tuned for. I recommend running it with the preloaded stage 1 91 map.

What relationship, if any, do the stg1 maps have to the DMTL pump? When installed, car throws DMTL failure code (*consistently*). When deinstalled, everything is fine. Weird!

Diagnostic Module Tank Leakage, often seen as DM-TL.
The pump that pressurizes the fuel tank to check for leaks for emissions compliance.

Diagnostic Module Tank Leakage. It has to do with emissions, like if your fuel filler cap is loose.

Yup. And for the life of me I can't think what relationship it could have.

The rev limiter is there, at least in the normal maps preloaded in the AccessPORT. But it's raised a few hundred RPMs from stock.

Excuse me if this has already been answered... I tried to search thru the thread but as we all know its a long one.

So I want to go to Stage 2 or Stage 3... in CA so need a CAT for emissions. What I was able to find searching thru the thread was that I would need a 3" high flow cat back exhaust. Is that accurate?

Does that mean I don't need a a 3" down pipe?

What vendors are making 3" cat back exhausts?

AFAIK DDMWorks is the only vendor that makes a 3" cat back exhaust.

Alta no longer makes their 3" system on which their stage 2 and 3 maps were designed. Their 3" downpipe had 2 (two) high flow cats.

FWIW Akropovic makes a 2 1/2" high flow downpipe (100 cel) which would probably be your best bet for a downpipe.

A few threads back, someone mentioned that they were running such a system, can't remember if S-2 or S-3, but Alta said the data showed no problems. good luck.

2.5" catless, or 3" high flow cat system will be good for stage 2. Technically though, running any type of high flow cat is illegal in CA.

boo

So there is no way to "legally" go to Stage 2/3 in CA?

And just so I'm clear the only other thing needed for Stage 3 is a FMIC?
