    Hi I hope you get I sorted, but I don't know were he got 500 from, like I said before for the imo you can just copy the 8 pin eprom, I have a programmer that will do that and it cost 80 but you can get cheaper, but some of the cheaper ones can not copy and write without removing the eprom, maybe he only wants to do it using the obd port ,

    Hi Dave, we did discuss removing eprom and I think moving to another ecu, but we both felt that that could be a big no no as if anything goes wrong I then have a non-running car, so presume he mean this software allows it all to be done plug and play (obd port?).

    Can be without the car (could not race for one an two I'd have to get a new ecu (with my imo setup from Volvo) just to then put the tune back on that! That would be best part of 1500 quid. If he ends up not getting anywhere with the new software I'll come back.
