Engine ManagementUnlock impressive power gains hidden within the ECU by replacing conservative factory settings with more performance optimized calibrations
FunctionThe AccessPORT is the ultimate ECU flashing device. The intuitive interface and full color screen become an integral part of your driving experience.
Anyone can install the AccessPORT. No computers, wire cutting/splicing or tools of any kind are required. The AccessPORT is one of the easiest modifications you can make to your high performance vehicle. On a scale of one to four wrenches, the AccessPORT is half a wrench. Drawn in crayon. No tools are needed and no computer connection is required. Just plug the AccessPORT into the OBD-II port under the dashboard and follow the simple step-by-step on-screen instructions. In just a few minutes you will have a new performance map loaded on your ECU and you will be ready to experience the additional power and driveability of a proper tune for your modifications.
The AccessPORT can store up to 20 maps so you can be ready for any challenge. Use the Change Map function to browse the maps stored on your AccessPORT and select the map most appropriate for what you want to do. Parking your car overnight? Load the Anti-Theft map. Handing your car over to a valet for dinner? Switch to the Valet map to prevent abuse. Running down the drag strip to beat your last ET? Fill up the tank with race gas and load up your race fuel map. Heading out on a long boring highway drive? Perfect time for that fuel economy map.
It's like an MP3 player for your engine. The "songs" are maps and the "music" plays through the exhaust! What song is up next? You decide.
The AccessPORT comes pre-loaded with maps to get you on your way, right away. Once the AccessPORT is installed on your car, you will have the following base maps to choose from:Stock Mode: The stock mode map uses the same calibrations that came from the factory. The stock mode map is a great way to re-establish a baseline when comparing tunes as it lets the engine behave the same way it did before installing the AccessPORT.
Stage 1 Maps: These maps are performance maps that are designed for vehicles with no engine modifications or mild modifications such as a cat-back exhaust.
Stage 2 Maps: These maps are geared towards performance upgrades that reduce restrictions in the exhaust system. If you have replaced the factory downpipe from the turbo, added race headers or replaced the factory catalytic converter with a high flow cat, a Stage 2 map is what you are looking for.
PERRIN Performance customers gain access to the entire PERRIN map database and will receive free PERRIN maps for life. ALTA AccessPORT customers have access to many more maps specifically designed specifically for MINI Coopers with several additional aftermarket parts configurations.
Every AccessPORT has built in Performance Monitors. These are great for showing the performance of your vehicle in the current state of tune with the modifications you have installed as well as helping to quantify performance gains when you make additional modifications. These are also great tools to help you improve your skills at the drag strip. It's like printing off your own time slip any time you want!
The AccessPORT functions as a hand-held data logging device. There is no need for a clunky PC to ride shotgun with you in the passenger seat. Just plug the AccessPORT into the OBD-II port, select Data Logging from the menu and choose which monitors you wish to data log. Choose as few or as many monitors as you like. Hit enter and data logging begins. Once the data gathering is complete, hit the enter button again. The data is stored as a data log file within the AccessPORT. The AccessPORT can store up to 10 individual data logs and the combined duration of data logs can be up to 10 hours.
The data logs are stored on the AccessPORT for as long as you want them there. Just unplug the AccessPORT and put it in your pocket, back-pack or briefcase. Your data goes with you with all the portability of an MP3 player. To analyse the data, simply plug the AccessPORT into any PC and download the data logs. The data can then be imported into your favorite spreadsheet or graphing software for detailed analysis.
Data logging monitors consist of both raw data types and calculated data types. Some examples of data logging monitors are throttle position, boost, ignition advance, wastegate duty cycle, mass air flow, fuel trim, battery voltage, intake temperature, coolant temperature, injector duty cycle, air/fuel ratio, knock correction, knock learning, injector pulse width, calculated load and many more. When logging multiple monitors, it is easy to see how powerful a tuning and performance analysis tool AccessPORT Data Logging can be.
The Live Data feature allows you to view sensor data and calculated values in real-time right on the AccessPORT. There is no need for a clunky PC to ride shotgun with you in the passenger seat. Just plug the AccessPORT into the OBD-II port, select Live Data from the menu and choose a monitor to view. Any monitor that can be data logged can also be viewed in real time using this feature. Live Data can function as an auxilliary gauge to supplement the stock gauge cluster, or it can be used to help in fine tuning custom tunes.
Unlike dedicated auxiliary gauges that can clutter up your dashboard, the AccessPORT functions as a soft gauge, allowing you to decide what gauge to display. Some examples of possible gauges are throttle position, boost, ignition advance, wastegate duty cycle, mass air flow, fuel trim, battery voltage, intake temperature, coolant temperature, injector duty cycle, air/fuel ratio, knock correction, knock learning, injector pulse width, calculated load and many more. As you can see from this small sampling, some of these monitors would be impossible to duplicate with a traditional auxiliary gauge.
As an added bonus, the AccessPORT screen can also function as a Rev Warning Light. Simply enter the RPM you want the Rev Warning Light to activate at. The screen will brightly flash red and white to alert you when that RPM has been reached, while simultaneously showing a Live Data monitor!
The AccessPORT is unique in the tuning world as it gives the user the ability to control exciting ECU functions from a hand-held device. Configure launch control, flat foot shift, adjust idle and adjust timing through the easy to use on-screen interface of the AccessPORT.Launch Control: This ECU setting adjusts the rev limit of the car while attempting to launch from a stop. The user can adjust the RPM that the engine maintains while at wide open throttle and the clutch is in. The speed that launch control disengages can also be configured.
Flat Foot Shift: Flat foot shift is logic added to the ECU to control engine RPM during a gear shift with the throttle held wide open. The user can adjust the RPM that the engine maintains while the clutch is depressed at WOT. This allows boost to be maintained between shifts and generates faster acceleration.
Adjust Idle: Allows user to adjust engine idle via the AccessPORT. Some applications even allow idle changes for air conditioning on and off separately.
Adjust Timing: Allows ignition timing adjustments to be made across the rev range via the AccessPORT.
Not every application supports all of these features.
The AccessPORT allows you to read engine codes to help troubleshoot issues and potentially save you from an expensive trip to the dealership. A brief description of the trouble code is also provided, which is handy when you don't happen to have a shop manual in your pocket.
The AccessPORT will read any trouble code reported by the ECU. In most cases this equates to hundreds of trouble codes and descriptions to help diagnose issues where ever you may be. Once the issue is resolved, the AccessPORT can be used to clear the codes to turn off the check engine light.
In the event that the car must be returned to the stock configuration, the AccessPORT can be completely removed and the ECU restored to its factory condition. Once the AccessPORT is uninstalled, it can be installed on a different vehicle of the same make/model/year. Since the AccessPORT can be uninstalled, combined with the ability to update the AccessPORT firmware via the internet, it retains a high resale value.
