Yay for paying co-drivers! He was a cool guy to (Sorry, I have forgotten his name). I will be a fun dual driver grid for sure!

Sucks about the Fedex shipment. They have problems sometimes. Recently at my work a Fedex customer service person (from Central America or some shit) said an item that we were waiting for was "out for delivery" but in fact it was buried in a truck with 10,000 other packages. Hope it gets resolved quickly for you.

(Christian) lol, he probably lurks on here since he has an 07 wrx now.

I hope so too, my car is acting weird between 0 psi and 5 psi. It just feels dead and I really wanna see what's going on. Oh well. The waiting game begins. Again.

UPDATE: Now I'm bullshit. First off it was in my mail box. The fedex delivery notice online said it was left at my front door. Since when does fedex leave things in your mail box? Anyway they sent me the v2b cable. Totally different and 100% wrong. Now I'll go through what happened when I emailed cobb about the first broken one. It took them two days to reply to my email, which they stated with an automtated response. Ok that's fine, I could have called them. After we got things squared away through e-mail I was told they were sending one out via fedex Next day air on friday and it should arrive monday. I got an email notice friday night that it had been picked up from cobb and was on it's way, via FedEx ground and was scheduled to arrive Wednesday So I basically paid 120ish dollars to get a broken dongle overnighted and then a week later receive the wrong one. I'm ready to go with a tactrix cable. Hopefully cobb will send out the right one and dismiss all charges or something, I'll find out.

/End rage session

Cobb overnighted another dongle to me and it is scheduled to arrive today, although it may not due to this storm that came from no where. Cobbs customer service is great, it just seems their shipping branch made a few mistakes. It was just a frustrating series of events.

I broke out the gopro for the ride to work figuring it might be interesting due to the unexpected snow. I'll upload the footage when I get home (if I do ) and edit it.

Got the new dongle yesterday and it works! I took a quick peek at things on the way to work this morning and things seem ok. The video I took on the way to work didnt come out so hot. I forgot how distorted the sound gets when its mounted to the window. To sum it up, there was a lot of snow. 4-8 inches were expected and we got 22 inches

Maybe I'll try some tuning tomorrow

What map are you using? Isn't the EFI one locked?

Yep! I'm going to try starting on cobbs stage 2 map and go from there. I drove around on the stage 2 map while EFI was making me a base map. I got a code for the car running too rich obviously, due to the unscaled injectors but it drove fine other than that and I still got 18ish mpg. I just need to go through Cobb's guide again to refresh my brain. I won't have to mess with MAF scaling since I still have the stock airbox. I'm not going to push it yet, just see how everything works and what changes with what I change in the map. We'll see how it goes.

Nice, curious to hear how easy/hard you find it. I thought about tuning myself open source in the past, but once I got tuned by Bren there was no reason to mess with the car again.

Funnily enough, basic MAF tuning is the one thing I did learn how to do, and I made small changes when I still had that APS intake. I'm sure there are settings for 850's somewhere on the Cobb or RomRaider forums that you could use as a starting point.

Yeah, in Cobb's guide they use DW 850's as an example for injector scaling and latency How convenient!

DW has their latency chart on their website for the 850 injectors. It's just a starting point though, you may need to tweak it.
