    I have posted this on as well...

    Hi guys I am currently running Cobb OTS Stage 1 91oct... I have the Cobb stage 1 power pack and ATP down pipe. After hard acceleration code P061A comes on. I am pretty sure that this code is putting my car into limp home mode... I know that the code is for a PCM error. The code resets itself every time the car is turned off but comes back on after hard acceleration. I have called Cobb customer service and they informed me it could be the down pipe because stage 1 isn't designed for a cattless down pipe. I am also only pushing around 19.5psi max and boost usually holds around 18psi. I am going to tighten my clamps soon. Just wondering if you guys had any ideas of what is causing the code to come on.... I emailed Ian at Cobb today... Hopefully he will have some answers.

    Description:possible Causes:Indicates an error occurred in the powertrain control module (PCM). • Software incompatibility issue • Damaged PCM

    Torque Performance... Hmmmm. You could be hitting a torque / load limit. With the cat removed you have greater output.

    How would I fix this problem? I can't tell wether or not it's putting my car into limp mode or not. I'm still getting almost full boost when the code comes on. I was able to log a highway drive which during the code came on!

    Did you buy the flasher from a specialist, such as Mountune? Do you have custom programming and data logging analysis with any company, in other words?

    I'm in touch with Braden at Cobb! He and Ian are being super helpful!

    They really are great guys. I've had that same code, and you'll almost certainly see it traced back to your DP. One a Stage 1 OTS map, I had that issue with 100 octane fuel and an upgraded FMIC (very reproducible on the track). You're just a new map away from happiness! Why not just drop in the Mountune FMIC, a freer flowing filter, and go with a Stage 3 tune? :)

    I'm a full time student currently and cannot afford to buy a FMIC yet.... Soon hopefully!
