Thought some of you guys would be interested to see how some of the improved 2012 power can be contributed to Nissan cam timing tweek

Intake cam timing would be more of area under the curve and response based on my past experiences. Have to go back and look at a couple of dyno charts overlaid on top each other.

Although looking at it again, I am noticing the top line, top rpm, taking some cam timing out which should help the top a bit.

I think Inside Line did back to back testing on a CBA and DBA. Although dyno only will show so much.

There are two cam timing maps in the 2012, and the one shown is the more aggressive one which I'm assuming is used in normal circumstances. My EDM 2009 won't actually run over 38 degrees, will be interesting to see what the 2012 does. We found most gains from lots of intake cam advance during spool and virtually no effect from changes thereafter. So the stock 2012 map looks quite good.

I have a 2009 GTR, had 2012 inlets installed while engine out for other reasons. I already have midpipe and 3" intakes and Cobb AP. Could I flash the following Cobb map?

Does anyone know if that includes 2012 cam timing?
Biggest question is whether it's safe to flash this.

No, that is for a 2012 and you have a 2009. You can only use maps for your year. Get the Stage 2 Big SF map. The maps use new improved timing that is not the same as 2009 vs 2012+ cars.

So does that imply other differences between 2009 and 2012 besides the inlets and ecu map?

You cannot put a DBA tune on a CBA. Besides that it won't work, the Cobb AP will not allow you to do it anyways, for safety. You need maps for a 2009.

But the main reason is because the ECU on the 2012 has a micro with more memory than the 2009 ECU.
It won't fit. :)

You can buy a 2012 ECU though. It will work once married to the BCM/NATS with Consult III :thumbsup:

Or you could get Ecutek and run the same style of ignition on either car �

+1 Call Ben and have him build an E-tune for your car. It will make more power than any OTS Cobb tune and the car will be dialed in.
