AT Accessport owners, where are you?

Just wondering how many of you are out there?

I own one and am currently running a "stock like" map with an redline extended to 8500 (need to pay for calibration service renewal lol)

anyone else??? Also if you have any HP/TQ numbers to share please do so.

I dont have one yet, but hopefully I will be getting one in the spring. Have you made any other tweaks other than the redline shift?

LOL i got excited there for a second till you said 6at, i hope to try to get good numbers out of mine smog legally. I have had midpipes and they always sound sweet but for the amount of driving I do the smell becomes unbearable. I am planning to probably weld a metalcore high flow cat in place of the stock one then run it with my current mods and a tune from MM and see what numbers I can get

I bought a used cobb ap for my car and will install it when the weather in nj gets nicer. But last week so a-hole coming in the other direction made a left turn in front of me and we hit. I am just waiting for a police report so i can get my car fixed through his insurance if he had any. The guy just went and did not even look.

Running the Cobb stockstyle map here, revised redline at 8800. When you say HP/TQ numbers, do you mean on a dyno? Or from the Cobb readings?

I can not wait to get my car back and get the tuning started. Also to take advantage of my upgraded transmission and rise the redline

Shouldn't a 6AT be getting more like 160-170 to the wheels?

most likely rather than gain he lost some HP from the intake sucking in hot air on the dyno. Every engine varies however.

Hah, yeah, I'm a 6AT. I've browsed the AT forums quite a few times.

I'll see if I can do a dyno day come spring to add to this thread.

Why such a high redline if the engine stops making increasing power at 8500?

I think it's actually a little lower but when Jeff asked me where I wanted it and the limit he could go was 10,000 told him to make it that.

Jeff stopped because we were doing a third gear pull. The next time we are going for a 4th gear pull.

If I understand what your asking, in lieu of.....the AP is the only flash tool I use (only one at a time can be used).

I dont have an actual dyno, the "dyno" feature on th AP varies so much ive gotten anywhere from 80-300 hp. If I were to guess I would say im in the 135-140 hp region considering stockish dyno's are 130/135whp with my mods being/ weld on 3" catback, AEM intake, BHR ignition coils, AP (stock like tune 8500rpm). I am going to weld a metalcore high flow cat in place of the stock cat soon(cant stand the catless smell anymore considering the rx8 is my daily driver.I also have a ZEX nitrous kit which I am having second thoughts about installing simply because I want constant not temporary power. I want to break the 200's...for now, so turbo is my temptation.

Ok, I miss read your post. Thought you were getting close to 300 whp. The AP is a wonderful tool but not for figuring HP. Turbos are the most plentiful and seem to be the easiest way for a AT to get over 200. Aren't you defeating your desire for 200 + by installing the cat? I had more bad (sulfur type) smells with a cat than without.

Thanks, that's what I was asking. I wasn't sure if there was some way to build upon the Pettit Recal with the AP or if one would just override the other.

true, but for the meantime a slow and smelly AT is not something I would like. If/when I have the power to back it up and justify the smell I will probably think otherwise about running catless. Until then Ill just take note on your parts and progress. I also have to stock up on cash.

Is it normal if my 4 port RX shifts at 8500-9000 without a Cobb or any mods?
