please do share how those of you claiming 'lean values on the OEM tune' measured this. AFAIK, the AP does not have the ability to log the OEM map.

i believe you were asking CAKEATER. But, there have been numerous dynos posted over the years. Isn't the stock 2800 rpm stumble associated with a lean spot?

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

I'm putting IAG back in here. Engine wise the car hase been trouble free for 56K. My STI is nearing the 60K minimum JJ led meto expect from a 2618 piston equipped block and it's still running strong.

Yes, it does. The accessport copies the existing map or if stock they call it the “Installed stock” map when you install the AP. This is what I refered to as Stage 0. I ran each stage to see and log the differences from Stage 0, Stage 1, then Stage 1.5, and finally Stage 2.5 (where 0.5 is the aftermarket intake added to that respective stage.)

Plots can be customized to show any data you want that is part of the log. If you have a wideband log, you can add the AFR log to the plot or you can use the AF sensor 1 from the ECU logs to show the calculated ECU AFR.

I was under the impression that the 'stock' MAP on the accessPort is not actually the OEM map, but Cobbs attempt to recreate the stock map for these purposes.

It’s a straight copy of the installed map, but it resets the ECU so learning has to happen again, otherwise it’s the exact same stock map unless you install their Stage 1 map.
