So, with the release of the v3 accessport, cobb has updated AccessTuner Race. Apparently, with this new update, ATR will not communicate with the ECU using a v2 accessport. We attempted to tune an 08+ WRX today as well as my 2011 STI with the exact same problems. We couldn't even create a map, save it, and reflash it to the ECU (E-tuning style). I now have 140 dollars worth of race gas in my tank and no way to tune the car for it. We called cobb and they gave us no real solution to the problem. Hopefully this gets fixed soon (as in, tomorrow) or I'll be removing every cobb item from my car and mailing it back to them. I don't want it. This is 100% unacceptable.
If anyone else has had issues and/or solutions to this then please chime in before I burn 20 gallons of VP for no good reason on a 93 octane tune.
