Yeah I didn't mean/intend to make the thread out to be like the tuners just flip on computer, toss on the tune, mail it back because it is quite simple to do if you have done it enough. My intention was just as stated, being about hardware since I want to make sure I don't fubar my car due to lack of support or whatever.
Flattered to be in that group, but just to be clear, I don't tune cars for people. Sometimes I help people who want to learn about it, but I've never sold a tune. Maybe someday, but I don't need the headaches or liability. I've considered it in the past, but the main idea of ECUProject was to stop the price gouging, and selfishly, so that I could tune my own Saab.
edit: Just to expand, building the tools to do things like un-compress firmware, or navigate checksums is no trivial task and is light years more difficult than applying "tunes" or modifying a spark advance map. It's like the difference between watching TV and building a TV.
