Re: ECM Tuning?

ECM tuning would be anything like an SCT X3 with custom files or the regular tuners. The FICM has to be sent out to get tuned. I believe PHP has some programmers that can access the FICM but I am not sure. Otherwise I believe Elite and Innovative offer FICM tuning.

There is a bunch of info on here about it and it does seem to improve things quite a bit by opening up parameters and giving finer tuning of the injectors themselves.

Ahh, I am hoping to get it some day


I could be wrong, seems tough sometimes keeping all these acronyms straight, but Innovatives site refers to the SCT tuning the PCM Not sure if the PCM covers the ECM duties or what or whatever shenanigans or going on under there lol
