Salt Lake City, Utah, October 29, 2006 - Today Cobb Tuning, Inc. announced the release of the completely redesigned AccessPORT™ handheld programmer and software for Subaru vehicles with planned support for Mitsubishi, Nissan, Mazda, and Toyota vehicles in the future.
Trey Cobb, CEO of Cobb Tuning, Inc. said, "Today's release of the new AccessPORT represents a revolutionary step forward for handheld ECU reprogrammers. With next-generation features and design along with Cobb Tuning's unique on-the-fly tuning technology, the new AccessPORT is another example of the well-engineered products Cobb Tuning is dedicated to provide its customers."
The AccessPORT by Cobb Tuning, Inc. is a handheld programmer that allows you to unlock your vehicle's hidden potential by reprogramming the stock Engine Control Unit (ECU). Performance tuning data is uploaded to the ECU via the OBD-2 diagnostic port in a matter of minutes, and requires no cutting, wiring, or other such modifications. Unique to the AccessPORT is the ability to change tuning data on-the-fly without having to completely reprogram the ECU. This technology allows the AccessPORT to get the most performance out of your vehicle in the least amount of time.
Using off-the-shelf staged tuning maps along with the appropriate vehicle modifications, the AccessPORT users can see power gains in excess of 50HP. Better yet, the AccessPORT truly unlocks the ability to extract a vehicle's peak potential through custom tuning for any level of modification.
