Please only fill out this form if you have a tune scheduled or have purchased a base map!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we will be allowing only the owner of the vehicle to wait while the vehicle is getting serviced and allow you to watch the tune from outside. But we are not allowing big groups of customers at our shop and are only trying to provide essential services to keep customers' cars running healthy. This is to protect our employees, our other customers, and keep us open. So if you bring any friends they will have to wait outside the entire time.
Please answer all of these questions to the best of your knowledge so the process of tuning your car goes as smoothly as possible and you get the most for your money. This is designed to benefit you so this process is as smooth as possible and that you do not show up with a car that cannot be tuned or does not meet your goals.
We will be taking your car to speeds in excess of 100 mph on the dyno. If you are not comfortable taking your car up to 100 mph then it is not ready to be dyno tuned. If your car vibrates or pulls to one side at high speeds we can not tune it.
Transmission type automanual
If your transmission is NOT the stock transmission for this car, please list the year and model of the car the donor transmission is from:
A Cobb Accessport is Required for tuning All - 2015+ WRX and 2014+ FXT (All Subaru Flex Fuel Tunes Require a V3 Accessport, except Carberry Flex i.e. 2002-2005 WRX.)
Do you have a V2 or V3 AccessPort or no AccessPort? (If yes please list the model. Not sure which Accessport you have? Click here):
Stock Downpipe/J-Pipe or Brand (A GESi cat is needed to not throw the P0420 code. If you are catless or have any other cat than the GESi you will likely throw a P0420. We can no longer disable that code on an Accessport)
Stock Up-Pipe or Brand/ External Wastegate
If you have an EWG, please list the spring pressure
If you have an EWG, would you like there to be flutter or no flutter (ie. when the wastegate opens, do you want the exhaust to have a smooth sound or do you want it to have a fluctuation in sound.)
Stock header or brand
Stock catback / axleback or brand
Stock intake or brand
Stock intercooler or brand
Stock turbo or brand
Stock fuel injectors or brand
Flex fuel sensor brand
Fuel pressure sensor brand
Stock fuel pressure regulator or brand (On 2008-2021 STI we require a Cobb or other aftermarket fuel pressure regulator. The stock regulator is known to cause the 2800 rpm stumble that can't be tuned out.)
If aftermarket FPR, what is the PSI base pressure
Stock in tank fuel pump or brand (Size)
Stock High Pressure Fuel Pump (hPFP) or brand (Size) (Applies only to 2015+ WRX)
Stock blow off valve or brand

2nd restrictor pill removed?(applies only to 2015+ WRX if running the stock boost controller with aftermarket downpipe, instructions of how to remove the 2nd restrictor pill can be found here.)
Stock Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor brand (size) n(for 2002-2014 WRX/ 2004-2007 an upgraded MAP sensor is required to run above 22psi.)(For 2008-2021 STI an upgraded MAP sensor is required to run above 26psi)
Stock Intake Air Temp (IAT) sensor or brand (An aftermarket IAT like GM or AEM is required to run Hybrid or full speed density on all EJ cars.)
Stock engine or built
If you have a built engine, please list any known part specs/brands
Stock heads or built
If you have a built heads, please list any known part specs/brands
TGV/Air pump/EGR deletes? If so, please list (if any of these are removed we are no longer able to shut the codes on with a Cobb Accessport. The TGV and EGR codes both put the car in limp mode and can't be on to be tuned and will not make full power if they are on.)
Do you have any other modifications? If so, please list
A note on fuels: Make sure you have the fuel you want to be tuned on in your vehicle when you come in for the tune. We can only tune your car for the fuel that is in the fuel tank. If you tune on 93 octane you will make more HP, but you can damage your engine if you boost with 91 or 92 octane in your vehicle. If you want to be able to run 91, 92, or 93 then you will want to tune your vehicle with 91 octane in it.
When you come in for the tune please have at least 1/4 tank for single fuel tunes. For dual/ flex fuel please have at least 1/4 but no more the 1/2 tank of fuel. We provide E85 included in the cost of the tune so no need to bring your own.
What kind of fuel is currently in your car? (91 non oxy, 91, 92, 93, E60, E85, or other)
What fuel are we tuning on? (91 non oxy, 91, 92, 93, E60, E85, Flex Fuel, or dual tunes)
Do you currently have or have had any Check Engine Lights? (We CANNOT tune a car if it has a check engine light due to any mechanical problems, if you currently don’t have any codes but get a code after the car is running on the new base map we provided, please update us with what codes you have. Your car should NOT have any check engine lights when you come in for the tune.We can no longer disable check engine lights with the Cobb Accessport.Examples: Front O2 Sensor - P0030, P0031, P0032, P0131, P0132, P0134 System too lean/rich - P0171, P0172, P2096, P2097 TGV stuck closed but not deleted - P2004-P2022 Speed Sensor code causing limp mode - P0500 AVCS codes, Cam/Crank Correlation, Cam Over Advance - P000A, P000B, P000C, P000D, P0011, P0014, P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019 P0021, P0024 Air pump - P2431, P2432, P2433Again if you have any of the codes listed above we can NOT tune your car.

Again if you have any of the codes listed above we can NOT tune your car.
Would you like oil pressure monitored on the dyno before/during tuning? ($50 charge. Highly recommended if you have over 150,000 miles, unsure about engine health or have a 2013-14 WRX/STI.) Our dyno can have multiple parameters it is monitoring at once. We are always monitoring air/fuel ratio, boost, fuel pressure, Ethanol content and RPM. This will have a live readout on the Dyno TV while we are tuning. For $50 extra we can hook up the oil pressure sensor into a galley below the alternator and monitor oil pressure before/during tuning. Monitoring oil pressure allows us to check the health of your engine by confirming it has adequate oil pressure before and during the tuning process. We have seen engines that run perfectly fine but have low oil pressure due to many possible reasons. Doing pulls with low oil pressure can cause catastrophic failure to the engine. If you have an aftermarket gauge this is not needed unless you want to confirm your gauge is reading correct. We can monitor your gauge at no charge if you already have one installed.
Do you have ANY mechanical problems? (Example- Running Rich, Will not idle, Poor fuel economy, boost/vacuum leaks, Not hitting target boost, Overheating, major oil Leaks, or any coolant leaks. We can not tune a car with mechanical problems.)
How many miles do you estimate are on your clutch, is it a stock or aftermarket clutch, and do you suspect it's slipping? Knowing how many miles on the clutch or if its slipping are important because we can not tune a car with a slipping clutch. If you suspect it's slipping it would be a good idea to get it replaced before the tune, If it slips on the dyno we unfortunately have to stop tuning and you will be charged for the time the car was on the dyno and will have to schedule another time to finish the tune after the clutch is replaced and broken in. Knowing what clutch you have is important because they are rated on the torque level they can hold. If you request a torque level higher then it holds and we go past that level and the clutch slips we will have to stop the tune there. The clutch may continue to slip even if we lower the power and you will ultimately have to replace the clutch.
When was the last time spark plugs were replaced and what were they gapped to? (If you do not know or have more than 15000 miles on them we highly recommend replacing them.) Recommend Gaps 2002-2014 WRX - .028" 2015-Current WRX - .021" 2004-Current STI- .028" 2004-2013 FXT - .028" 2005-2012 LGT - .028" 2005-2009 OBXT - .028" 2014-2018 FXT - .028"
When was the last time you changed oil? (If it has been more than 2 months or 2000 miles we highly recommend changing your oil before the tune.)
Do you have any exhaust leaks? (Any exhaust leak can throw off either the factory o2 sensor or our dyno Wide Band Sensor and cause the fueling to not be tuned correctly.)
How Strong is your Battery/ Alternator? (We can not tune with a dead battery or a charging system that does not work)
What are your Power Goals/ Expectations with your tune? (Letting us know all your expectations of the tune prior to the tune will help us guide you in the right direction as you may not have all the necessary performance parts to achieve your goal.)
Do you have any parts needed prior to your tune or any parts installed? (Our expert techs install performance parts all day. Our labor rates are very fair. And our expert support can help you decide which parts to purchase from us to achieve your goals.)
Do you need a base map to drive your car to our shop with the new parts installed? (If you have a Cobb Accessport or a Tactrix Cable, we can email you a base map to drive on with your new modifications. It can be unsafe to drive after installing modifications. Having a base map allows you to drive your car and double check it rather than waiting and towing it in and not being able to double check everything.)
If you have an AccessPort, please enter the Serial Number Sticker (examples: SUB03xxxxx or SUB04xxxxx) (We do not need the "Original Serial Number". For help locating the serial number click Here):
If you have anything wrong with your car that needs addressing before the scheduled tune date, you will want to let us know. Our expert technicians can be booked out as well, so you will want to get on the schedule to be ready for your tune.
If you have parts that you want installed prior to the tune or need parts you will want to let us know. We can help you get those parts since we are distributors of most performance brands 126.96.36.199/parts
