    Once the map is installed.
    Yes, it can be unplugged.
    The only need to keep it connected would be to use the gauge functions.

    Thanks for the replies. The extra torque from the stage 1 mapping is really tempting for just $500... I just don't see myself wanting to mount the port just so i have more gauges.

    Im the same way. Will flash and put it away.

    Remember, it is not just 30lb/ft of torque, it's an extra 200-300 rpm on your redline and torque truncation in 1 and 2 is turned off by using the AP.

    And yes, once you've installed your tune you can put your AP away but I really really enjoy the extra gauges, and mounted to the side of the MFT hood it's secure and easy to read at a glance and obstructs none of my view.

    As I ONLY will use the gauge mode on track days.
    I want a CD slot mounted holder that would place the AP in front of the MFT.
    Since I would not be using the MFT on the track this would put the gauges in a better line of sight.

    Hey BlueBomber, can you point me to some pics of your mount? I want to put my mobile phone there so I can use Torque Pro version gauges.

    Just pulled the trigger on an AccessPort. I'm looking forward to the extra power on the 91/93 maps.

    I definitely do! I jumped straight to the 93 map since that's all I put in it and it is great! Really looking forward to autox now!

    I'm curious to see how many MPGs you actually lose...

    Driven *exactly* the same way, and you'll improve fuel efficiency with this new tuning. The hard part is actually wanting to do that!

    The nice thing is that even occasional WOT blasts don't completely destroy fuel efficiency (provided you don't immediately brake each time).

    Have fun!

    Driving *exactly* the same is impossible with this added fun factor! Additionally, I changed to 225 width summer tires from 195 winters. It's getting warmer, so that will help. Autocross season starting up, so that will hurt. I will be doing 1000 mile round trip business trips probably twice a month. I am interested to see where it ends up, if it ever really settles.

    I look forward to watching your fuelly score. :)

    If you have enough freeway miles, you'll be pleasantly surprised. After driving 110 miles to Big Willow, running nearly 30 laps, with a lot of WOT (2.5 miles each), and driving home the same 1110 miles (at a civilized pace), I averaged more than 20 MPG. That works out to a bit more than 10 MPG on the track, and about 28 MPG on the road. Not bad so bad, huh?

    So far, the gas milage has held. We'll see what the long term effects are. I still managed to get a tank average of 29, even with an autox event in the middle of it. The 1000 mile round trip to VA aren't hurting my average either.

    That's pretty impressive and reinforces the low operating costs for our fun little car! :)

    Would I be able to use the V3 to program a different tire size? I want my odometer and speedometer to read true with my winter tires on, and know the dealership can do the programming for a fee. Since I plan on ordering the V3 for the performance benefit, it would be nice if I could have a practical reason as well.

    The Accessport and Accesstuner does not have that ability right no, sorry!
