    Thanks for posting. Was surprised not to receive an email from you guys via the Cobb Support network?

    That's exactly what I was thinking! How come I constantly get emails about Cobb's latest release on the Raptor or WRX downpipes and yet I have to find out about a critical update for my RS by coincidence.

    Still, kudos to the OP/Cobb for posting to where customers may find out about it.

    Thanks.... thinking the forum isn’t the best place to publish this. All customers should be contacted directly as this seems rather important.

    I couldn't do an update until I updated the Accessport manager.

    ironically, a marketing email blast just went out from Cobb like 20 mins ago... no mention of this critical update . #oops

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    ^^ At least we know they offer a turbo blanket now. keep your turbo nice and warm when your ecu craps out and your car is stranded.
