Mitsubishi Evo X AccessTUNER Gets Massive Beta Updates

COBB is proud to announce new beta updates for the USDM, ADM/EDM, and World Market Mitsubishi Evolution X. With a quick beta update in AP Manager and AccessTUNER, you can unlock 2-Way Map Switching, CEL Knock Flashing, Mode23 Data Logging, and Refined Load Calculation Strategies. New Stage 0 v210 maps will also be available to use as a starting point to take full advantage of the new AccessTUNER features.

AccessTUNER Updates

By properly blending load based on unique MAF and MAP sensor calculations, the newest Beta AccessTUNER allows your Evo X to perform better than ever. This enhanced understanding of the tuning logic is accompanied by an all new tuning guide, 2-way on the fly map switching, CEL knock flashing, and Mode23 data logging. To update, open AccessTUNER, click Help, Check for Updates, and check the Beta box.

The Updated Tuning Guide, v300 includes the latest tuning strategies, table additions, and monitor updates. Not only is it a great Saturday afternoon read, but it is the best way to learn about the new tuning strategies from the engineers who have spent months researching the optimal way to tune these vehicles. Just open AccessTUNER, click Help, then Help again.

The Refined Load Calculation Strategy utilizes newly exposed tuning tables to fine tune the MAF and MAP systems using the OEM strategies. The new tuning strategy laid out in the all new Tuning Guide eliminates SST shifting issues, jagged timing curves, inconsistent fueling, poor idle with aftermarket intakes, and false knock events.

Mode23 Data Logging enables factory data logging commands for additional data channels and the ability to use alternate logging software. To use Mode23 Logging, just save your current or new map file in the latest version of Beta AccessTUNER and then reflash it to your vehicle.

CEL Knock Flashing can be enabled using the new CEL Knock tables in beta AccessTUNER. These fully adjustable tables allow you to have the CEL on the dash flash at different speeds under knock conditions. A quick and simple way to help monitor the health of your car without needing additional gauges.

2-Way Map Switching allows you to pre-load two finely tuned maps and and quickly switch between them using configurable switching options such as TPS based switching or Cruise Control based switching. This is a great option for performance/economy map or pump gas/E85 map combinations.

Using the new tables in beta AccessTUNER, you can modify and switch between the following tables:

EVOX Map Switching Table List:

– “Boost Target Engine Load #1A ( High Gear Range)”
– “Boost Target Engine Load #2 (Low Gear Range)”
– “Cranking Enrichment IPW Adder (Main)”
– “Fuel Injector Scaling”
– “High Octane Fuel Map”
– “High Octane Timing Map”
– “Passive Solenoid Base WGDC Map #1A (High Gear Range)”
– “Passive Solenoid Base WGDC Map #2 (Low Gear Range)”
– “Reactive Solenoid Base WGDC Map #1A (High Gear Range)”

– “Cranking Enrichment IPW Adder (Main)
– “Fuel Injector Scaling”
– “High Octane Fuel Map”
– “High Octane Timing Map”
– “Reactive Solenoid Base WGDC Map #1A (High Gear Range)”

AccessPORT Updates

After a simple Beta Firmware update using AP Manager, your AccessPORT will be able to take full advantage of new Data Monitors.
New Data Monitors help utilize the new AccessTUNER map switching, MAF/MAP load calculation, and SST shifting features:

• “Active Map” – Current active switchable map, distinguishing between the two potential map slots.
• “Gear – Current” – Current gear as reported by the TCM. (SST Only)
• “Gear – Next” – Next gear to be used as reported by the TCM. (SST Only)
• “Load Ref. Calc” – A blended version of Calculated Load based on MAF/MAP sensor calculations.
• “MAF Calcs” – Load calculations based from MAF sensor input.
• “MAP Calcs” – Load calculations based from MAP sensor input.
• “Reported TQ to SST” – Torque Reported by the ECU to the TCM for SST actions. (SST Only)
• “SST Cal. Tq. Multiplier” – Allowed torque percentage for the SST. Will drop during shifting. (SST Only)
• “SST Clutch Status” – Displays the clutch/de-clutch status. (SST Only)
• “Tip In Transient” – A derivative of throttle position during engagement of the accelerator pedal.
• “Tip Out Transient” – A derivative of throttle position during disengagement of the accelerator pedal.
• “WB AEM AFR” – Wideband AFR using an AEM UEGO WBo2 wired into the rear O2 harness.

These beta updates are available now! As always if you have any questions, you can contact support@cobbtuning.com or call 866-922-3059.

When are you guys going to release an update for the 2013 evo x gsr to allow protuners to do a cobb protune? I went to Sean Ivey yesterday and was told that I couldn’t be tuned yet because you have not updated the software for the 2013 models. Any info/timetable would be great! Thanks!

    Very soon! We are in the final stages of testing for 2013 Evo support.

I heard via a forum that the 2013 evo x software is available now but I need to order a 2012 accessport and then download the software for 2013 on it. Is this true? Just need to know for sure and I’ll be ordering the AP for my 2013 evo x. Thanks

    Yes, we do have 2013 Evo X support and maps! The 2012 and 2013 models use the same part number Accessport, so just order the 2012 Evo X AP, update to Beta firmware using AP Manager, and then download the maps from our forums. If you have any other questions, just email support@cobbtuning.com or call 866-922-3059

so all you have to do is update the accessport and then it should be good? And what about if my car has an AMS intake, will it still work if i want an e85 tune?

would you have any support for 2012 Australian EVOX? I just bought one, and found the V3 doesn’t work on my AUS EVOX.

    Hey Bryan, ADM and EDM support is something we are actively working on. Unfortunately I do not currently have an ETA for that support, but I’m hoping for a summer release.

Thanks Marshall, and I will wait for the ‘summer’ release, actually while winter in Australia ;P

Hi there, is it safe to use the USDM stage 2 or 3 OTS map on my JDM 08 Evo X SST? I am located in New Zealand and using 98 octance here. The reason why I am looking at the possibility of loading the USDM OTS map on the JDM Evo X is because in here are not many tuners familiar with COBB Accessport yet in Auckland, and I’m not sure if they can carry out a dyno tune of the Accessport. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Ken, unfortunately you will not be able to directly use a USDM map on a JDM vehicle as there are some table differences. The data values are not compatible from USDM to JDM ECUs however if you were to study the changes made in the USDM OTS maps from stock, you could apply that same general idea to a JDM vehicle. Another (simpler) option would be to contact one of our Protuners that offers E-Tuning services. E-tuning allows for a tuner to remote-tune your car through map revisions based on datalog feedback. You can find Protuners using our online Dealer/Tuner Locator.

    Hey Ricardo, the version of AP Manager that was on the CD is actually quite old. You can find the newest version of AP Manager on our website at the link below.

will you update the EDM maps with at least the anti-theft and valet maps? also the stock EDM – stage 0 – map does not perform as it should, it puts the car into limp mode every time, i had to uninstall it to make the car functional!
when will the OTS of USDM be available to other design models?
I already purchased the AP and do not want to contact a “pro-tuner” to pay more just to convert those OTS maps!!

    Hey Ahmad! Terribly sorry to hear you’re having some issues with the Stage0 OTS map. Unfortunately, without having an EDM car on hand diagnosing any issues like that may be a bit tedious. Are there any other modifications done to the car? Since it is meant for a completely stock car, any modifications at all could potentially put the car into a limp mode. Feel free to email over any additional information to support@cobbtuning.com and we’ll try to help you get these issues sorted out!
