Each map lists the minimum required octane. A higher octane fuel can be used safely on a map designed for lower octane. DO NOT use maps designed for higher octane with lower octane fuels. Top Tier gasoline should be used where available.

  • Maps designated with "93" are for use with 93 and 94 octane fuel or better.
  • Maps designated with "91" are for use with 91 and 92 octane fuel or better.

These maps are designed for E10 fuel (fuel with 10% ethanol content). For those who only have access to E0 fuel (fuel with 0% ethanol) it is recommended to use the "91" octane version of the maps and datalog the car to ensure your fuel is performing to the necessary level. This is especially important for those using Canadian 94 octane E0 fuel. 
 

If you are unfamiliar with how to datalog using the Accessport or what to look for, you can find a guide on our website here
 

If knock or detonation is present even when using the appropriate fuel, try reflashing a map that is intended for a lower octane fuel.

Non-Performance Maps

Anti-Theft Mode

  • Will not allow vehicle to start

Valet

  • Fuel Requirements:
    • 91 octane or better
  • Intake Requirements: Stock airbox and stock air filter
  • Exhaust Requirements: Stock exhaust
  • Boost Targets: Mechanical minimum
  • Rev Limiter: 3000 RPM

*Not intended for aggressive driving*


All Stage1 performance maps include a "High boost" version:

  • High boost: Higher Load request for use when normal calibration produces no knock and the user desires slightly higher power level.




High Altitude: 

A quick note for those of you that live at higher altitudes: it is common for turbocharged cars at higher altitudes to run less boost pressure due to lower air pressure and air density. Your turbocharger has to work harder to compress a less dense air mass compared to the same turbocharger at sea level. This must be factored in when determining if your turbocharger is running the proper amount of boost pressure and not being pushed beyond its efficiency range. 
Example: If you live in Denver at 5280 ft. and are trying to run a peak boost pressure of 15 psi, your turbocharger has to work the equivalent of making ~17.5 psi at sea level.
There are barometric compensations within the factory ECU that lower boost targets as you climb in altitude in an effort to keep the turbocharger in its optimal range. The COBB performance maps utilize these compensations and therefore, it is perfectly normal for the final boost / load value to be lower than what is listed for your map.
 



Revision Notes: 

v108

  • Maps have been updated to eliminate unnecessary DTC Suppression, or uprevved for parity with other maps.

v107

  • No calibration changes.
  • Maps have been updated to eliminate unnecessary DTC suppression.

v106

  • No calibration changes.
  • Version parity update across all USDM MK6 GTI Maps.
  • Critical Bug Fix: Applies to USDM Volkswagen GTI CCTA 1K0907115AP - Fixed v105 map issue causing ECUs to brick after a reflash. 
    • Warning: Please discard any existing v105 maps for USDM Volkswagen GTI (CCTA 115AP).

v105

  • No calibration changes.
  • Version parity update across all USDM MK6 GTI Maps.
  • USDM Volkswagen GTI CCTA 1K0907115AP - Fixed issue preventing v104 maps from allowing Accessport to install.
