Product Description

COBB Accessport V3 for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Focus STs and 2014, 2015 and 2016 Fiesta STs.

COBB's Accessport V3 is the best tuning option available for your 2013-2016 Focus ST or 2014-2016 Fiesta ST. This flexible ECU upgrade solution unlocks power hidden within the vehicle by replacing conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations. The Accessport V3 (P/N: AP3-FOR-001) can provide off-the-shelf calibrations for most bolt-on modifications and it should be the last engine management solution you will ever need. Along with all the new viewable upgrades from the V2, the V3 also has more speed, more memory, more map storage, more live gauges and more troubleshooting help.

Choose from multiple gauge setups which include your choice of one gauge to six gauges. Scroll through tons of different display parameters to view the specific information important to you. Information can be displayed in metric or imperial units. A shift light can be set to the desired RPM and is plenty bright that a separate shift light isn't needed. Monitor all the parameters you want to view and customize each layout for the street, strip or track.

Measure 0-60 MPH time, 1/4 mile time or horsepower with a built-in dynamometer. An included trouble code reader allows you to diagnose problems on the fly without the need to stop at a garage. The most important aspect of the Accessport V3 is the ability to install different maps and quickly adjust tuning elements such as idle, timing, launch control and flat-foot shifting. Create your own custom maps for your Accessport V3 using Accesstuner Race. A complete OEM tuning table provides access to optimize your mapping for any set of modifications. Data logging is included so you can view engine vitals which can alert you to any changes that need to be made to your tune. If self-tuning isn't your thing, visit a local tuner in the COBB Professional Tuning Network to have a custom tune created and loaded onto your Accessport V3. You don't even need to physically visit a tuner if you don't want to. Use easy data logging and map loading on your Accessport V3 to have an e-tuning expert remotely custom tune your vehicle.

Installation is extremely simple, fast and straight forward with easy-to-understand directions to guide you through setup. Initial setup matches the Accessport V3 to your vehicle modifications. The on/off switch allows you to turn off the programmer so the battery doesn't die. An automatic dimmer brightens and dims the screen depending on day or night.

Accessport V3 Features:
- New vehicle support and Stage 1, 2 and 3 maps
- Customizable multi-gauge display
- Data logging
- Multiple tuning options including timing, shift light, launch control, etc.
- Burnout mode
- Consolidated Economy mode maps to map slot 2
- Performance maps are loaded in map slot 1
- Re-mapped cruise control buttons for map switching
- Improved installation and map switching times by up to 25 percent
- On/off switch with auto on/off detection
- Large, full color, 1/1000 high resolution screen
- Automatic dimmer
- Easy-to-use interface
- Interchangeable face plates

Tech Tip: Several custom features are now user adjustable through the Accessport for all Focus STs and Fiesta STs.  These adjustments include changing map slots, turning custom traction control on/off, and adjusting the amount of slip the custom traction control enables.  These adjustments can be found in the “Tune” -> “Adjustments” -> then select which CCF you’d like to adjust. It’s important to note that CCF Accessport Adjustment feature is dependent on the calibration file being used. The Traction Control feature must be enabled via a custom tune (Custom Tune is NOT Included).

COBB tested a 2013 Focus ST with the following calibrations. Generally, the 87 and 91 octane calibrations run slightly lower boost, have a richer fuel curve and a less aggressive ignition advance map to help compensate for lower octane fuel blends and/or less than ideal atmospheric conditions. Maps designed for 93 octane are the most aggressive.

2013-2016 Focus ST Power Increase:
- Stage 1 87 Octane - Peak +6%HP/+16%TQ Max +10%HP/+18%TQ
- Stage 1 91 Octane - Peak +5% HP/+13%TQ Max +10%HP/+18%TQ
- Stage 2 91 Octane - Peak +12%HP/+13%TQ Max +15%HP/+18%TQ
- Stage 3 91 Octane - Peak +19%HP/+19%TQ Max +24%HP/+26%TQ
- Stage 1 93 Octane - Peak +7%HP/+15%TQ Max +10%HP/+20%TQ
- Stage 2 93 Octane - Peak +14%HP/+15%TQ Max +17%HP/+20%TQ
- Stage 3 93 Octane - Peak +21%HP/+21%TQ Max +26%HP/+28%TQ

COBB tested a 2014 Fiesta ST with the following calibrations. Generally, the 91 octane calibrations run slightly lower boost, have a richer fuel curve and a less aggressive ignition advance map to help compensate for lower octane fuel blends and/or less than ideal atmospheric conditions. Maps designed for 93 octane are the most aggressive.

2014-2016 Fiesta ST Power Increase:
- Stage 1 91 Octane - Peak +3%HP/+12%TQ Max +5%HP/+15%TQ

COBB Accessport V3 Focus ST 2013-2016/Fiesta ST 2014-2016 is rated 4.909090909090909 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tuner Bought this product and installed it for my 2016 Focus ST a few days ago, and it is fantastic! I did not expect to really see much of a difference on a off the shelf stage 1 91 octane tune, however it feels like the car came alive! Highly recommend this product and as always CJ pony parts is great to work with. I have been using them to build my mustang for about 8 years and it is always a good experience! The only thing that is remotely negative is that I wish it came with the A pillar mount I dont want to double side tape the accessport to my dash, so I ordered the mount after recieving the tuner. Thanks CJ's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a-MUST I've installed this on that puppy and this is the best $800 (CAN) that I have spent. Love all the maps and the gauges you have. The change in the car power is simply day-night. I feed her with 94 Octane and it's just insane the Tq / pound I'm getting. Actually, when it rains, it's hard to not spin the wheel cause it's too powerful. I've also bought a Cobb pre-oiled double cone filter. Wow... The wiiiiissssshhh without the annoying sound of the BOV. So, if you still don't have that Cobb AP in your car, you do NOT have the full potential of your ST. PS : You will hit 345 Tq if you are on 4th great, at 2000 RPM then squeeze the pedal all the way to the floor.. Bam ! You will stick to you seat and impress anyone in the passenger side. Cheers !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Horsepower and Torque gain when paired w/TSM After long awaiting the purchase of this Accessport v3, I can honestly say it is the best $500 you will ever spend for your Focus ST. This unlocked so much power and throttle response even without any Turbo Supporting Mods! Once I added the Cobb cold air intake and the Mountune High-Flow Exhaust to my 2015 Focus ST, the power gains were absolutely amazing. The software provided on Cobb's website to accompany this product is seamless and works on Mac or PC. Loading/Dowloading/Uploading tunes and DataLogs is EXTREMELY simple and makes using this Accessport a BREEZE! In all, if you are considering buying this product, don't even hesitate, BUY IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but hard to find clear concise written instructions I absolutely recommend the access port if you want to tune your Focus ST. I noticed significantly improved performance with the 93 octane stage 1 map with the COBB catback and high flow air filter. The one thing that is frustrating me is the lack of instructions for custom features such as burnout mode, flat foot shifting and launch control. I don't really plan to use these features much as they are abusive to the engine, but I would like to have clearly written instructions on how these features work. The YouTube videos are not detailed enough for me. That being said this is a great product and I do highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but mind your limits It is quick and easy but you need to make sure you know what you are doing. You cannot just get this and install the stage 3 high octain and expect power, you need the hardware to support that map, otherwise you can and will damage the car. Cobb is now showing off if new feature of map slots, which lets you "quick switch" between programs (up to 5), but what they do not tell you another special program (Accessport race or pro) or pay someone with the program to set this up. Over all I absolutely recommend this for a "light tuner" who still uses the car as a daily driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best programmer I've ever used Best purchase for my 2014 Focus ST. With the injen intake (highly recommend from CJPP as well), the power output is an incredible difference. I break traction in 3rd gear almost effortlessly. It's so much easier to use than any other programmer I've ever used like edge, and bullydog. The gauges are easier to read than most and are easy to customize to your liking. Another thing to consider, when using economy mode, the mileage is amazing! 650+ to a full tank of 91-94 octane. anyone still thinking about it reading this review, buy it!!! 100% worth it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A HUGE Difference in Performance I just purchased this last week and immediately installed in on my Fiesta ST. I was kind of hesitant since I haven't put any modifications on yet (I have the turbo back and intake just need to install and am purchasing an intercooler next month). I just didn't think it would make much of a difference. However, knowing that my aftermarket products were soon to be installed, I went ahead and purchased the Accessport and installed it as soon as I got it. The ease of installation was unbelievable. You pretty much just plug it in and let it do the rest. And the performance difference was actually quite noticeable. Everyone said the throttle response was better after installing but I didn't know how that was supposed to feel until I pushed the pedal to the floor. You can feel the increased torque extremely well. I can't wait to get my intercooler and install it with my turbo back and intake so that I can upload stage 3. I will be back to let you know how great it is!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tune! Just installed COBB intake and set the stage 1 93 octane map on my 2015 focus ST! Huge boost gains and definitely noticeable gains in torque. You can really hear the turbo breathing now. Can't wait to install turbo-back exhaust and the FMIC so I can upload the stage 3 tune! Maybe I can talk my lady into paying our rent for the next couple months... Best $500 dollars I've ever spent, hands down! Kudos to COBB for making an amazing product!

Hello, I'm curently running a roush cold air with a borla cat back(stock downpipe). Just hit 20k miles should I be using a stage one map? And should I replace the spark plugs? 

Asked by: Rymott90
Stick with the Stage 1 MAP and change your plugs. Once you upgrade your intercooler you can move up.

If I have all of the necessary upgrades installed for stage 3, would the AccessPort be sufficient enough, or would I need to get the car dyno-tuned as well?

Asked by: timothyjordanbaker
If you have all the stage 3 parts the AccessPort will work.

Few short and simple questions; Will this work on my brand new Focus ST 2016? I only plan to do a replacement filter. Are there a decent amount of tunes for a mostly stock Focus ST that come pre-loaded? How does this work with a push to start ignition?

Asked by: deadlyfishes
Yes, this will work with your new Focus ST and even the OTS (Off-the-shelf) tunes for the car in 100% stock form will make a HUGE difference. A push to start ignition will not effect this in any way.

COBB Accessport V3 Focus ST 2013-2016/Fiesta ST 2014-2016 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: Performance wise so far we've installed a COBB cold air intake and a Borla exhaust system on our Focus ST. Right now we're using SCT's 93 octane base file for tuning and have seen some pretty good gains out of it. The only drawback to the base file is it's actually designed for a Dyno tune so you want to put the car on the Dyno and then modify the tune for maximum performance. If you're changing as many parts as we're planning on changing this doesn't make much sense. Today we're looking at another way of tuning, which is the Accessport from COBB.

The beauty of the COBB Accessport is the ease of use and the database that comes along with it. When you get your Accessport it gives you a link to their website where you can go on and download any map that you want. There are hundreds of maps to choose from covering pretty much any modification you want to do to your Focus ST. You plug in your computer and download the maps directly to your Accessport and plug in your OBD2 sensor to your Focus ST and install the tune. As usual, COBB gives you everything necessary including the tuner itself, multiple face plates, a cable for your computer, the OBD2 cable, a nice carrying case, as well as a mounting bracket for your dash.

Before we begin the installation of the Accessport you want to make sure if you're using another tuner you want to flash the vehicle back to stock first and that will unlock the other tuner and allow us to install the Accessport.

You're going to start the installation by taking the supplied OBD2 cable that comes with the Accessport, pull this cover down here and plug it in. Now take the other end of the plug, fish it up your dash, and plug it into your Accessport. It'll turn on automatically.

The first thing you notice about the Accessport, it's a nice high definition full color display. It's real easy to read, four buttons here at the bottom will run you through all the operations. The install is the main one but we'll click down to the check in one here. Here's your trouble shooting section. Click into that. You can read your codes, you can reset the computer, you can also kill the keep alive memory, which is nice if you're trying to delete a code you just can't get rid of. We're not worried about that now so we'll cancel this and go back to tuning stream.

Install tune is what we're looking to do so we're going to click on that. The next screen is going to come up and ask you what vehicle you're using. You want to make sure whatever you're programming with your Accessport is what comes up on the screen. In our case US 2014 Focus ST. We hit continue.

Basically here what you want to do is pick the file that best suits the performance mods you have done to your car. In our case we run 93 octane, we go to the stage I tune here. They do recommend putting a battery charger on it. It draws a decent amount of current when you're tuning with a tuner like this. If you have a battery charger use it. You definitely don't have to, but while you're tuning make sure your lights are off, radio is off, don't have anything else running at the same time.

At this point our Accessport is connecting to our computer to verify everything is correct before it starts the tune. Now it's saving the factory data from the computer. We're going to speed up all these processes. Each one is going to take usually a couple of minutes to go through, especially for your first tune. We don't want to make this a 25 minute video so we'll speed up this process here.

Now the Accessport is preparing the computer for the new tune. It's going to download. Now it's actually flashing our computer with the new file. This will be the longest part of the procedure, definitely going to take a few minutes for this to go through. The first time you program the car you want to give yourself, figure it's going to take 20 to 25 minutes to put the tune in.

When the flash is over the car is going to turn back on. Turn the ignition off and then we'll turn it on again. Okay to continue and there we go, our installation is successful. The check mark means everything is good to go. Tap the ignition button one more time to turn it off and our installation is finished with the tuner.

Now we start on our Ford Focus to make sure the tune went, everything runs like it's supposed to. Go back to your Accessport now and you'll notice you have different options. Before we just had tune and the check engine. Now you've got gauges, performance, there's an extra tune section there, as well as user tools. Take a closer look at gauges. Pretty much anything that runs off of the OBD2 port you can actually monitor now inside of your Accessport.

We set it up earlier for actual air fuel ratio, as well as boost. Those are the two most people are going to look at. We'll show you how to configure some others. You go onto the screen and hit the arrow at the top. Here you can change the layout and you can choose how many different things you want to monitor. We had it for six, we'll make it three to make it a lot easier to see. Now you can see we have our actual air/fuel ration our boost, and now we'll set up the bottom one here. Click down to it and hit the select button. You want to change the monitor and then go into all this stuff here and choose exactly what you want to see. We're going to make it actually do the charge air temp. Click on that. Now you can see we have our air/fuel ratio at the top, our boost in the middle, and the air temperature at the bottom. Again you've got tons of options here as far as you want to log and it's real time so you can use it on the car you're driving or you can actually log these for a Dyno tuning session if you wanted to, a very cool feature of the Accessport.

One more cool feature in here, we'll go back again to the arrow at the top for set up. Click into that and there's a shift light built in so we're going to set that up next. We're actually going to leave it at 4500 that way we can hit it without having to run the car red line, but normally you want to set your shift light up pretty much where you want to shift the car. To have a little more fun we'll set it at 5000. If you watch these lights here, once we hit 5,000 they will actually light up telling us to shift the car. Again, pretty cool feature.

Going back down to the main menu you see the stopwatch below the gauge. It actually has performance timers built into it. You have a 0 to 60 timer, as well as a quarter mile. If you want to try these out make sure you do it not on a public road. Find a big parking lot, abandoned air strip, somewhere else. It's a pretty cool feature that's built into the tuner.

Going back to the main menu again there's all your troubleshooting. This allows you to tune the vehicle and make adjustments and load different maps. Down the road you add an intercooler to make a different modification, get the new map for it, load it up to this, plug it into your tuner and download it to your Focus.

The last section down here is user tools where it says you can save and back up data. There is additional software available. If you did want to tune your car yourself you can buy the software through COBB through CJ Pony Parts and you can tune it yourself, again with a qualified user on a Dyno. You can see it's going to be tough to really tell the difference from one tuner to the other. You've got to get on the Dyno where you'll really be able to tell. I can say that so far it feels pretty good. The throttle response is really, really good. I almost swear the turbo sounds a little bit louder where it shouldn't, but there's a possibility the way the tune's being done we're making a little more boost as well.

We'll run up the gears a little bit and test out some of the gauges that come with the Accessport. That's cool, you can see the air/fuel when we get in the boost like it's supposed to, watch the boost jump like it's supposed to as well. The gauges are very cool. If you're trying to really keep an eye on what they're doing you want to log instead of actually watching them because they are kind of small. Putting the tuner where we have it makes it so you can look at it quickly while you're driving.

Judging off what we've seen on the Dyno when we're under full boost the air/fuel looks about right. So far so good. The Accessport is a great little tool to have for your Focus ST. Not only do you have access to hundreds of different performance maps, the gauge allows you to monitor any engine parameters that you want to, as well as data log them. You can also remove and troubleshoot any kind of engine codes and there's a few fun performance timers as well. If you're serious about performance for your Focus ST make sure you check out the Accessport from COBB.
