I will definitely keep everyone posted. Yes, this is the best option IMO, as I don't do piggybacks.

The ESS Direct Flasher comes as a package deal with your tune. Yes, you can download the stock file back to your car whenever you want and then download the tuned file again if you want. Basically, once you have loaded your stock and custom tuned files to your Direct Flasher unit you have the option to download any of the files at any time. It only takes about 15 minutes or so, but it is literally as simple as plugging in a flash drive and following very simple on-screen instructions.

I did a full write-up on my 135 tune from ESS here -->

Again, more details to come shortly.

Yes, I am trying to get a dyno session scheduled and should have something very soon. This holiday weekend has delayed my dyno sessions.

Yes, it comes with a handheld Direct Flasher unit that plugs directly into the OBDII port when you want to download files to your car.

Similar as it plugs into the OBDII port and then you can upload/download files to and from the car. That is as much as I know as I have no experience with the Cobb AP.
