It will make tuning easier, but the cost will increase as you are adding a $200 flash tool into the purchase mix.

    There are pros and cons with a flash tool. You must stick with the software inside the ecm the tool reads out. If the tuned file is left in on a dealer visit and they overwrite it, it will lock the OBD tool due to firmware mismatch and render the $200 tool junk. Definitely better for no vehicle downtime and custom tuning options vs. mailing ecms back and forth.
    GDE, I am guessing that even with a handheld option CA customers are still out of luck?

    Very ironic indeed. In reality all that CARB and EPA accomplished with the settlement was to provide owners with the funds to accomplish their emissions deletes.

    If/when GDE offers a handheld for their hot tune will you be able to include the trans tune in the same handheld?

    That is the goal, depends on the flash tool internal memory limitations. We are waiting to hear back from the supplier.

    Great. Definitely looking forward to it. Been reading so much good about the trans tune. Waiting for this while emissions stuff to be over so I can get my tune updated to the most recent you guys have and add the trans tune.

    You might have to wait a while for OBD flash on the new software. That will take some time to iron out.

    Well if that’s the case I guess I’ll just send my ECM in then.
