I just got a Cobb AP V3 from Mountune with Randy's amazing tune, but I'm pretty unfamiliar with the device and this is all new to me. I can't find answers to these two questions:

Can I enable Cobb TC with the custom tune loaded on the ECU? If so, how?
Is there a way to view HP/torque numbers? If so, how?

I honestly am not that familiar with the TC through Cobb but I believe your tuner has to do something with that. I don't think it's an option you can just enable on the AP. No, you cannot view the HP/Tq numbers on the AP either. I would look in a program called VDyno if you want to get HP/Tq #'s. (alternatively if you have a bluetooth OBDII adapter you can download Torque Pro which will give the HP/Tq #'s you desire but it all comes down to the settings to get semi accurate #'s)

A tuner has to add TC onto the tune for you. You cannot modify anything like that without Accesstuner. I believe Cobb did have an estimated torque/hp feature on the AP but I have only had a V2 and it was on my MS3 so don't quote me on that. But like elyk864 said, you can use vDyno.

I'm surprised they don't include the HP and TQ on the AP v3 since it can calculate 0-60s and 1/4 miles. I think I'm going to have to have Randy enable Cobb TC. I'm having a hard time getting traction through 2nd gear even with OEM TC. It is pretty cold this morning though and I'm still on the F1s.

It doesn't matter what you do with the stock F1's. You have to get them really hot before they get and decent traction. Going to the Michelin Pilot Super Sports was a night and day difference as far as traction goes.
