Is there anyway to check what ECU Map was used previously with the Cobb AP?

I just purchased a 2010 GTR with a P600 kit which includes, larger intercoolers, BOVs, HKS filters, and a P600 Calibration.

The previous owner informed me that he currently has the car as "uninstalled" or stock ECU map. I just flashed the car yesterday to the Stage 1 (91oct) map and the car now feels sluggish compared to what it was before.

Could I have possibly overwritten the P600 calibration, which I assume is an ECU map from Switzer. Is there anyway to use the Cobb AP to see the history of maps that were used?

Also, I saw a video of the flash rewritting from the Cobb AP. Is this an update I need from them or an entirely new AP? I would like to have my car flashed in 20-40 seconds compared to 5-10 minutes


Thanks in advance!

Is it knocking? Is it the right P600 MAP? What version of a tune/Cobb do you have?

Is it setup with the steering wheel MAP switching?

Not sure what knocking means but there are no problems with the car. I checked for codes and saw nothing either.

I have what I believe are the same maps that Cobb has listed on their website. As far as the version I remember seeing version 006 or something like that but I will have to check when I get home. I do not know if I have steering wheel map switching either.. :/

For the steering wheel map switching, pls look into this;
For the Knocking refer to this video;

I think for the version you are referring to "006" that may be the AP with TCM part nis-006? against the AP without TCM part nis-005.

Hope this helps.

^^ thanks for the videos and info...does the nis-006 have the flash tuning that takes 20-40 seconds? Currently my Cobb takes about 5-7 minutes to reprogram the car

not sure about the 20-40 seconds, but shld be on the fly. after pressing the cancel button on right steering wheel (~2sec). you can select which map you need by toggling up/down, then should be ready to use.
just not sure if we have to stop the car or put into neutral before can use the new loaded map? anybody please chime in.

Thanks in advance!
Hollywood Hogan congratulations on your purchase! I will answer your questions below:

1. "Is there anyway to check what ECU Map was used previously with the Cobb AP?"
- No unfortunately not. The AccessPORT can only see the current map that is flashed onto the car. For your level of modifications on the car you shouldn't be running stage 1 or stock mode. You'll want to flash the P600 map back onto your car or get it re-tuned to support your modifications.

2. " Also, I saw a video of the flash rewritting from the Cobb AP. Is this an update I need from them or an entirely new AP? I would like to have my car flashed in 20-40 seconds compared to 5-10 minutes "
- You'll need to update your AccessPORT firmware to obtain the 20-40 sec. flash times (available once AP is installed, during change map). If your AP is taking 5-10 minutes your firmware is out-of-date.
- You get download AP Manager 2.0 from here http://www.cobbtunin...m/info/?id=3059 (This software will help you update your AP)

3. GTR001: "after pressing the cancel button on right steering wheel (~2sec). you can select which map you need by toggling up/down, then should be ready to use."
- GTR001 is referring to on the fly map switching. This feature allows you to toggle between several maps on your calibration. This may or may not be available in your Switzer tune (you'll have to check with Switzer Performance on this one)

Cheers,
Will
