The time is finally here! We are extremely excited to announce the availability of COBB Accessports for Porsche’s 718 Boxster/Cayman and 991.2 Carrera and 911 Turbo! This project has been in the works for quite some time as these cars share a completely new ECU and required the work of many engineers to dissect and understand. In the past weeks, we talked a bit about the power gains expected for each car. If you haven’t seen those yet feel free to take a gander! The flashing process for the ECUs in the 991.2 and 718 cars requires an extra step before the Accessport is able to communicate. ECUs will need to be shipped to COBB Tuning to be unlocked, more on that process below.

A New Step: ECU Unlocking
There is a new element to the ECU flashing process for vehicles supported by these three Accessports. Just as COBB did over 10 years ago with it’s first ECU flashes, we will be bringing ECUs in-house in order to unlock them before an Accessport can be installed. This means the process for installing an Accessport on your 718 or 991.2 vehicles will be a bit more involved than in years past. Not to fret, we have a system in place to ensure ECUs are shipped and returned in a timely manner. Customers will be updated at each step along the way, from the initial purchase to receiving the unlocked ECU and Accessport.
Once an order is placed with COBB Tuning customers can expect to receive two emails: one including notification of the received order along with detailed instructions and a guide of what to expect. A second email will be sent with tracking information for the ECU return box. Once that box is received, the ECU can be placed into it with the provided laser-cut foam insert. A pre-paid return shipping label will be provided for all orders placed and shipped within the United States.
An email will then be sent to the customer letting them know when we receive the ECU and are able to begin the ECU unlocking process. Once that process is complete, an additional notification will be sent to let the customer know that the ECU and Accessport are packaged up and shipping back to them.
Upon receiving the unlocked ECU and Accessport, customers can now install the Accessport as they normally would.
