Well CPH I have to say you started the slagging match on the other thread
We as tuners are just trying to make people a where of
crap remaps and some so called custom maps cheap or expensive
that are damaging the chip tuning business
We havenít ever said what companies are at fault
But trust me some of the files I have seen in here
Some people get more power then others that dose not make a bad
map .and just because some people clam more power then others
that also doesnít necessarily make it a good file
Alfa Tuner has been making files for over 20 years and is one of the best in the
Reading your remapping thread I have to say I agree its way off
Sounds like you have some experience with standalone ecus
But not much with OE
I donít think you should be threatening people its out of order
You have just been told your post is inaccurate on some points
Well most pointís really.
Why not just have a discussion about it
Iíve been building race engines and mapping ecus for around 15 years
I donít know it all and will never stop learning in this game .
Modifying files in OE ecus can not be done live on a lot of new ecus the word
you are looking for in your post is an Emulator.
This involves unsoldering the EPROM fitting an a socket etc .
Try doing that on a 7.3 or 5.5 etc etc
True chip tuners have to do more then just plug a lead in up load a modified
files that they got from the Internet.
We have to open ecus on some,read the file in boot mode or bdm
modify the files and correct the check sums etc etc etc
Get cars In test files etc etc
This is why we can not carry out a remap and a induction kit for
inc rolling road etc for £250
OBD tuning is quite a new thing
You will find a lot of so called tuners will not take on say
156 2.5& 3.0LGTV with early ecu s ME 2.1 2.2 3.2 JTS, Petrol Mitos etc as they are
not a straight forward obd job and take to long
and in most cases they couldnít do it any way
