Wonder if this is going to make a difference in the ecodiesel tuning world? It is the same base ECU as the ecodiesel (Bosch EDC17)
That contraption means it can program the ECM through the OBDII port in our Ecodiesels?
If you wrestle with a pig you'll both get dirty and the pig loves it. .
just to let you guys know. with this break through on the bosch ECM, PPEI and Vivid now have handheld tuners for the ecodiesel. No more having to mail in your ECM.
Maybe it will help lower the price on tuning. My BMW can be tuned from the OBDII with 6 different tuning programs, transmission program and option for self tuning for $550.00. I got about 3 times that in our three letter friend.
The OBD flash tool that works on ecodiesel is from Dimsport. Any tuning company can purchase this device and use like PPEI or Vivid Racing. We are working with our flash tool supplier to get protocols updated to work with the engine via OBD. We have had trans tuning capability on the tool for 18 months now. 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.
Had a friend of mine from Namibia who uses that to tune his Diesel Toyota, said he'd help me tune my Ecodiesel. Naa, I'll stick with GDE, plus you guys are a vendor that help support the site. After the FCA settlement, I will be talking to you folks about the Offroad Tune and firing up my sawzall.
