A while back COBB Tuning moved from Utah to Austin, Texas. When they made the move they took it upon themselves to really absorb the Texan culture. As such, they became huge fans of the ultimate symbol of manhood; the Mustache. They love the ‘stache so much that they have started a competition, a ” ‘stache off” if you will. What are the rules? Simple. Start growing your mustache now and style it in the most manly fashion you can think of. Then take gratuitous photos of your lip carpet and submit the pictures on the COBB Tuning forums. Members of the forums will then vote on the top mustache and the winner will get their very own Access Port! Do you think your hormones are capable of producing a top shelf ‘stache? Then prove it by putting your face fur against others in this battle royal! Just visit the contest page for the rules and get started! Good luck!
Rejoice bimmer fanatics! If you have the current 335xi or the 535xi you can now use the COBB Tuning Access Port! It was just announced yesterdaythat the brains at COBB have successfully tuned their own personal bimmers with a custom access port map and it works just fine. So far you can run stage 1 applications on automatic or manual transmission cars but as time goes on I’m sure stage 2 applications will be available.
The sound of COBB Tuning’s GT-R time attack car is pure music! Check out this in car video of driver Brian Lock’s hot lap of Spring Mountain Motorsports Park at Round 8 of the Redline Time Attack series.
If you’re looking to tighten up your Nissan GT-R’s handling beyond factory levels then you should probably pay a visit to COBB Tuning. They just released these new adjustable end links to help sharpen steering response for various conditions and situations. The best part is they will bolt right up to the OEM sway bar with no modifications needed. The only catch is that COBB did a super limited run of the endlinks and once they’re sold out they will not re-stock. So get them while you can!
I just saw the news on COBB Tuning’s blog that AMS Performance’s Nissan GT-R equipped with their SR850 performance package broke the 10 second mark which officially makes it the fastest R35 GT-R in the world right now. Check out the record breaking pass below.
COBB Tuning just announced that due to increased “production efficiency” they’re able to drop prices on the AccessPORT module for a ton of applications. This isn’t some wack 20 dollar drop either, each application on the list got a price drop of at least $100! Some Infiniti, Honda, and Mazda applications even got a $200 drop! If you were on the fence getting one before now might be the time to pull the trigger. Click the red text above to see the full list of applications and their new prices.
Mitsubishi fans throw your hands up! COBB Tuning finally dropped an AccessPORT unit for the Mitsubishi Evo X! It comes in just under 700 bucks and has 126 tuning maps available with undoubtedly more on the way.
By now we all know that the current Nissan GT-R is pretty much a super hero. It vengefully fights crime at night while disguising itself as a billionaire playboy during the day. However COBB Tuning wanted to see if there were even more extraordinary abilities that we don’t yet know about. So, they went forward with an experiment that some might call controversial. They worked their tuning magic to see how well a GT-R would run on E85 Ethanol fuel. The result? Try 574HP at the wheels! Turns out the GT-R loves the Moonshine more than “Cletus The Slack-Jawed Yokel”. Check out COBB Tuning’s blog for all the details.

COBB Tuning just dropped a new blow off valve for Subaru’s and the Mazdaspeed3. Interesting mix yes? The new blow-off valve dubbed the “XLE” can function in three different modes: full recirculation, full atmosphere, and a hybrid mode that combines both plumbing configurations. The XLE is on a limited edition run so if you want one you better take swift action before they’re gone.
Cobb Tuning has a new yet “limited” edition of their SS cat-back exhaust for the Mitsubishi Evo X. This unit is rocking a 3″ inch diameter made from 304 aluminum and has a straight through design. This is definitely a quality piece but Cobb Tuning is only doing a limited run of 50 so if you want one you better pick it up now-ish.
