COBB XLE BOV & Evo 10 Turbo Inlet

July 6th, 2010 No comments

COBB Tuning announces the immediate availability of the COBB XLE BPV for turbocharged Subaru vehicles. The COBB XLE BPV is a compact and lightweight by-pass valve is capable of holding very high boost pressure without leaking and its unique design allows extremely fast venting of boost when actuated. It is designed to operate in multiple venting modes and can be quickly reconfigured using simple hand tools. Innovative engineering and precision manufacturing result in a compact package able to fit in the confines of a tight engine bay.

The XLE BPV supports three operating modes: full recirculation back into the intake tract, hybrid mode venting to the intake track and atmosphere and full atmospheric with all air vented to atmosphere. The spring preload adjuster allows fine tuning of the pressure required to open the valve. Operating mode and spring preload are both adjustable using simple hand tools.

FEATURES
Body
• Body, mounting flange and secondary outlet cover are constructed of 6061 T6 aluminum.
• The body is hard anodized for additional strength.
• The primary outlet is rectangular in shape to provide maximum cross sectional area for venting pressurized air as quickly as possible.
• The secondary outlet cover can be removed to enable partial vent to atmosphere or full vent to atmosphere modes.
• Unit height is only 3.5 inches from base of flange to top preload adjuster,allowing it to fit into the tightest of locations.
• Body to mounting flange interface is o-ring sealed, allowing flanges of different shapes to work on multiple applications.
Piston
• Lightweight aluminum piston allows faster reaction time than heavier pistons.
• The piston has been hard anodized and impregnated with Teflon for smooth movement, reduced wear and minimized maintenance.
• Rounded piston profile smooths air flow as it passes through they cylinder.
• The rounded piston profile mates with a rounded piston seat for superior sealing when the BPV is closed.
• Tight tolerance o-rings seal the piston to the cylinder bore at normal engine operating temperatures without sacrificing piston speed.
Preload Adjuster and Spring
• Adjuster allows adjustment of spring preload for fine tuning release pressure.
• Spring and spring seat are constructed of 303 stainless steel.
• Spring preload adjustment mechanism and fasteners are stainless steel.
Operation
• Valve vents pressurized air very quickly due to lightweight components, port shape and low sliding friction.
• Unique exhaust sound due to speed of air release.
• Construction materials make the XLE BPV compatible with alcohol/water injection due to inherent corrosion resistance.
• Lighter than most aftermarket BPVs and BOVs.

COBB Tuning announces the immediate availability of the 3” FP Turbo Inlet Hose for the Mitsubishi EVO X. The COBB Tuning 3” FP Turbo Inlet Hose is designed for use with Forced Performance 3″ turbos. The bulge design of the COBB Inlet Hose increases the cross-section to 3.5” to maximize air flow delivered directly to your 3″ Forced Performance turbocharger, providing much more efficient power and response. The smooth inner walls of the COBB Turbo Inlet taper gradually at both ends and reduce the air turbulence that occurs in the factory accordion style inlet.

The COBB 3” FP Turbo Inlet Hose is constructed using four plies steel-reinforced silicone, eliminating the issue of hose collapse that other inlet pipes suffer while under suction at peak demand. While the steel reinforcement provides excellent stability, the silicone allows adequate torsional flex, allowing engine movement on the OEM engine mounts under hard acceleration without risk of separation.

Available in COBB Blue or Stealth Black, this system uses all factory fittings and clamps.

Part Number: 752002BL (Stealth Blue)
MSRP: $115
Part Number: 752002BK (Stealth Black)
MSRP: $115

EVO X 3” FP Turbo Inlet Hose:
• 3” outlet to fit 3” FP turbo compressor housing inlets
• Bulges to 3.5 inches to reduce restriction and improve flow
• 4-ply steel-reinforced silicone won’t collapse under vacuum
• Available in COBB Blue and Stealth Black
• Uses all factory fittings and clamps

COBB AccessPORT ProTuner EFI Logics makes big power with the 2010 Subaru Legacy GT

March 9th, 2010 No comments

While the COBB AccessPORT for the 2010 Legacy GT has not been fully released, a select group of ProTuners are making good progress with the BETA version of ProTuner software for this vehicle. The 2010 Legacy marks a complete departure from the turbo system we have known grown to love and trust on turbocharged Subarus of the past. Instead of locating the turbo above and behind the engine, the new Legacy has its turbo slung under the engine. In addition, this vehicle sports an all-new ECU. BETA testing is well underway and ProTuner EFI Logics was able to test the new software on a willing customer’s car with some very impressive results.

While peak hp increased 9hp to 223hp, MASSIVE gains of up to 60hp in the midrange really brought the car to life. This was due to huge torque gains of up to 90ft-lbs, bringing peak torque to 304ft-lbs from the stock 214ft-lbs. Looking at the graph, it’s plain to see that these gains extend throughout the entire rev range! Note that this is on a bone stock 2010 Legacy GT. No intake, exhaust, fuel grade change or anything was added to the stock car. These impressive gains are simply from remapping the ECU with a proper AccessPORT calibration.

This indicates a smaller turbo than what is currently available on the STI and WRX. With exhaust and intake modifications, power output could be increased by another 25-35hp with even more torque. With the Legacy growing from smallish sport sedan to a much larger tourer, the added power will be welcome. In addition to the AccessPORT, look for other parts coming online for this vehicle in the near future as well.

*both runs were made in 3rd gear

COBB Tuning Takes On Time Attack In 2010

February 25th, 2010 No comments

COBB Tuning is officially throwing its hat into the ring and announcing its participation in the 2010 Redline Time Attack series in a big way. COBB Tuning Motorsports will field a three car racing team participating in the Modified, Street Tire and Enthusiast classes for the full 2010 season. In addition, COBB Tuning has assumed the title sponsorship of the Modified Class for 2010. The newly formed COBB Tuning Motorsports division will prepare and campaign the race cars from its facility in Scotts Valley, CA.

The COBB Tuning Redline Time Attack team will be attending all ten events on the 2010 schedule to compete for the championship in each of the three classes it is participating in. Pro driver Brian Lock will be piloting the 2010 COBB Tuning Nissan GT-R and taking on the COBB Tuning Modified class. SCCA Regional wheel-man Cameron Benner will drive the 2006 COBB Tuning Subaru STI and battle it out in the Street Tire class. Novice driver and owner of COBB Tuning, Trey Cobb, will be driving the COBB Tuning “Mystery Machine”, to be announced at the first round of the series, in the Enthusiast class.

The COBB Tuning Time Attack team will be staffed entirely by COBB Tuning employees. Tim Bailey, Senior R&D Tuner at COBB Tuning, will be responsible for the team’s multiple engine programs. Steve Lock of COBB Tuning Motorsports will keep things running like clockwork as the team’s Crew Chief. Head technicians from the COBB Tuning Surgeline and COBB Tuning Plano facilities will fill the roles as Car Chiefs for each race car. Employees from engineering, customer support, marketing, sales, research and development and fabrication will rotate through positions in the team with the goal of developing new skills and knowledge that will ultimately improve COBB Tuning products and further strengthen COBB Tuning as a company.

“Everyone at COBB Tuning is fired up about our return to racing”, said Gary Sheehan, Director of Marketing. “Our company is made up of auto enthusiasts that love power, speed and competition! We are putting a lot of effort into Redline Time Attack this year as we think it is THE place to show off our passion as tuners, fabricators and racers. We are really looking forward to meeting up and spending time with fellow enthusiasts at these exciting events all over the country.”

The Redline Time Attack is one of the fastest growing forms of motorsports in the US. The Time Attack racing format is styled after qualifying sessions, pitting each competitor against the stopwatch, demanding maximum performance from driver and race car alike, in just three timed laps per session. Vehicles are classed according to levels of modification, and further differentiated by driveline type (AWD, RWD & FWD). Redline Time Attack is unique in that all driver experience levels are represented at the same event, from top-level famous professional racers to novice drivers just getting started in their development. It is one of the few venues where racing spectators can also be racing competitors.

The Redline Time Attack series has undergone significant changes during the off-season and is poised to be the motorsports focal point for auto enthusiasts in the US. Ten events will take the racing teams crisscrossing across the country from coast to coast. Time Attack mainstays such as Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Willow Springs International Raceway and Auto Club Speedway will be joined by premier race tracks new to the series, including Sebring International Raceway and Infineon Raceway.

New tracks mean new track records, and COBB Tuning is anxious to stake their claim and lay down the fastest lap in class at each of the new locations. Be sure to attend a Redline Time Attack in your neck of the woods and spend some time with the COBB Tuning crew as we take on the best teams and drivers that the Redline Time Attack series has to offer!
