    You’re right.
    I’m just feeling pessimistic. Lol

    Hi

    Do you still have the PC installed with the Accessport?

    Any kind of issues when you turn the steering and give gas? like no power

    Any reason you don't use the Dynamic Pedal Control (Throttle Response setting) on the Accessport instead of keeping the pedal commander?

    I find that the throttle response from the PC is more linear than using the AP settings. I have used the AP pedal control from settings up to 8 trying to feel out the gain, but found that there is a large sudden increase in response after pushing the pedal down a bit. The PC seems to raise the gain in a linear fashion immediately upon pressing the accelerator pedal. If you look at the gain chart for the AP, you can see what I am trying to explain. Although we don't have the same chart for the PC, I feel the logic is a bit different and has much more adjustability.
    I also find the way the trans shifts varies with changing the gain. So, having more settings can help dial in a smoother shifting transmission along with increasing pedal response. To summarize, the PC feels smoother on acceleration with all gain settings from the start of pressing the pedal, and the AP seems to add gain quickly AFTER the pedal has been pressed. I hope this helps explain my findings.

    Just got my Ap, i put the throttle at 10. there is still a little lag. I turned on my PC( sport +4) and no lag.

    I know i just installed AP with the pre map stage 1 93 oct. . it doesnt feel the same as my sct4 tune from 5 star 91 oct. my boost goes to the limit when i give gas. AP boost doesnt.

    is it just the tune i need to improve. how many tunes did you need TX RNmedic.

    I used Calibrated Power for tuning the Cummins on mm3 since 2017. As soon as they came out with the ecoboost tunes via ezlynk for the 2020 Raptor, I was on board as I like their service and products. I was using the pedal commander (PC) on the Cummins with their tune and had great results. The ezlynk tuning platform doesn't have an option for increasing throttle sensitivity, so using the PC on the Raptor with it was a no-brainer. Upon reading more about the Accessport with Cobb and its great reviews, I wanted to have a custom tune with Goose, so I bought that as well. Both platforms have their pros and cons. The protuners can probably add throttle gain if requested, but having the ability to change it to your liking without map modifications/revisions seems much quicker and much less hassle.

    To add, one pro of the Ezlynk platform is the ability to monitor the inferred ehanol/alcohol content of the fuel. Being the Calibrated Power maps are "flex tunes", may be the reason for tapping into and providing the ECM flex fuel monitoring capability for this PID. I contacted Goosetuned and Cobb requesting this PID be available to us that run ethanol blended maps, but both said it is unavailable on the Accessport.
    If anyone knows how to write a custom PID to achieve this on an app like Torque Pro, please let me know. I believe the ECM's output for this parameter, albeit "inferred", would still be accurate for our use.

    can you provide more info on the Ezlynk? What’s the primary benefit? Is it a PC replacement?

    Hello! The Ezlynk is another tuning platform like Ngauge, SCT, Accessport, etc. It is a cloud based system for obtaining files and such and then flashing to the vehicle. It uses a connection with your smartphone for flashing and PID monitoring. Your phone is the gauge cluster like the Accessport would be used in gauge mode. Unfortunately, not all protuners use multiple platforms for applying their files. Cobb/Goosetuned do not use ezlynk and Calibrated Power does not port to the Accessport...go figure. It would nice to have multiple custom maps from different protuners on the same hardware platform for a direct quick comparison. As we all know, the Accessport is nice, but backing up before flashing and then uninstalling is a real timesuck!
