Alta Access Port with Perrin Stage 4 Tunes

Selling an AP with 10 additional Stage 4 tunes

Tunes are specific to the 42/56 turbo sold by Alta. However this size turbo is also sold by JMTC and FrankenTurbo if I'm not mistaken.

Price is $750

You will have better luck selling that ALTA Access port crap on NAM or LXM.

We are all well educated and know better then to buy crap with ALTA, M7 on it.

Alta Access Port with Perrin Stage 4 Tunes
It wasn't made by Alta, it was made by Cobb tuning, a respected manufacturer of tunes and speed equipment for BMW, Subaru, Porsche, VW, Ford, Mazda and Chrysler. Alta only marketed it.

I have an Access Port and I like it alot, it even reads BMW trouble codes and acts as a data logger

It's a little dated but that's why I bought Stage 4 tunes for it.

And as noted it's really a Cobb product. Care to enlighten me on your distaste for Alta and M7?

I've actually got the Alta boost tube and M7 OCC w/o issues.

Alta and M7 are just crap parts. I know M7 has some new MAXX G stuff now that's at least better than what they've put out in the passed but since it's sold by M7 they can keep it.
That boost tube and occ can say made by walmart on them and there would be 0 difference. The boost tube will likely wear out at the mounting points and fail within 2-4 years depending on what is rubbing against it and the occ, well, that just kinda sits there donnit? Not like they have any affect on performance anyways. Just be happy they're not even remotely critical components to the cars operation.

Well I actually have the Alta turbo. But it's really just a Borg Warner that Alta sold.

Speaking of the OCC I saw one exactly the same (sans logo) for about $30 instead of $150. Problem was getting the fittings specific to Mini.

So you have the Alta turbo not the boost tube? OCC's like the ones Alta and M7 sell are pure crap. There needs to be some sort of baffling in order for them to actually capture oil mist. I regrettably spent money on an M7 OCC (had a 35% off coup'n) a little while back and I crammed a bunch of stainless mesh into it so that it could do what it's advertised to do. Still does a crap job at catching oil. It's been in there since MOTD last year and still have yet to see anything register on the little side hose deal. It's plenty dirty inside and all the mesh is oil covered, but the out/in are right next to each other on the can and since it's the carbon version I can't open it and add any plates or baffles to make it function. M7 cc and the like are just as "good" as those selling for like 20 bux on ebay. No thought goes into anything they design. They either rip off another design or just put out crap components. OR buy and badge then resell as their own.

I don't know about M7. As I understand it they have a new owner so I am willing to give them a changes. As far as Alta I don't use them because of their customer support. I had a problem with with a part they shipped. I cold not tell if it was damaged. It was a spark plug. When I called to ask about it, I was told it was not their problem to call the shipper. They were rude from the word go. I tried to tell them I was not sure if it was a defect from manufacturing or damage. I wasn't even asking to return it, I just didn't want to use it and have it come apart and damage my engine. I could have understood if I had called them several times but this was my first time to talk to them, I would have even eaten the cost of the plug.

You compare their behavior to the sponsors MA has. They support the community and are very helpful. Even going out of their way to support us. They deserve our support not Alta.

I didn't know that. That must be when the MAXX G stuff started.

Cobb tuning is not that great either.
