COBB Accessport for Volkswagen/Audi 1.8t





The Accessport provides handheld DME flashing that you can do in any location at anytime.  No special tools or dealer/tuner visits are required!  The Accessport comes pre-installed with Stage 1 Off-The-Shelf (OTS) maps for 91 and 93 octane for all 1.8t vehicles listed above.  The Stage 1 OTS maps provides significant power gains over stock outlined in the graphs below.  Note: Certain features like launch control and flat foot shifting are not available on the 1.8t models.

Stage 1 OTS Power Gains

Stage 1 91

Peak Torque Peak Horsepower
Stock 209 164
Stage 1 91 287 224
Percentage Gain 37% 35%

Stage 1 93

Peak Torque Peak Horsepower
Stock 209 164
Stage 1 93 295 220
Percentage Gain 41% 34%

Keen eyes will notice that on the dyno runs shown, the 91 map makes more HP than the 93.  Slight variances are to be expected when it comes to dyno runs.  Both maps actually make about the same peak horsepower as the powerplant is not being limited by octane.  The limits come from the smaller stock turbo size where additional boost or ignition timing does not make additional power.

Note that these pulls were made with an all wheel drive Alltrack 1.8t.  Golf models with a traditional automatic transmission with a torque converter will likely dyno with slightly less output.  DSG front wheel drive vehicles may produce slightly more on a dyno due to less drivetrain loss.  However, each of these differences is negligible.

More details on available off the shelf maps can be found in the Map Notes.

Stage Packages
