    Default main differences from hpt to efi live

    i mainly tune the ecotec 2.0's and just recently purchased a 2010 camaro. HPT is frustrating me with their lack of support for the E38 pcm. And i'm really considering purchasing efi live. i have yet to see efi live in use and was wondering if it accepts input from aem widebands or not. most of my customers use them as well as myself. Also any other major differences etc?

    Hi boostedyards86,

    Welcome to the forum...

    See this thread: showthread.php?t=10550&highlight=2010

    You can view the 2010 tune files in that thread...

    download/install the V7.5.5 build 88 software from here:
    http://download.efilive.com/Software...5.88_Setup.exe

    that is the actual software... without the FlashScan V2 cable, the software still allows you to view/edit tune files and to view log files.

    Let me know if that helps... and please post up any questions you have.

    Cheers
    Joe

    FlashScan supports all wide bands that provide a 5V analog output AFR voltage.

    FlashScan also supports direct digital wideband serial interfaces (which are not prone to any voltage/ground offset issues) for the following wide bands:
    Innovate
    PLX
    FJO
    JAW
    AEM UEGO
    ZT-2
    TechEdge
    ECM-AFR

    Other major differences are:
    - Integration between the Scan data and Tune maps - i.e. you can watch which cells are active in the tune maps as you play back logs or log in real time.
    - Free use of all our custom operating systems
    - Scripting option to allow you to automate repetitive calibration setup tasks.
    - Standalone features (i.e. no laptop required) such as: display/clear codes, the ability to display/log PID data, and soon to be released reading and re-flashing direct to/from the FlashScan device.

    Regards
    Paul

    I own and use both EFI and HPT, the ONLY reason to use HPT is if EFI didn't support the particular engine/ ECM/ TCM you wanted to work on.

    Black Box Logging is awesome and the EFI scan tool is way better than HPT's scanning/logging.

    Ditto on this. Had a chance to compare recently. No comparison with Black Box Logging, FlashScan Tool, graphing/reporting/maps. Way out in front on this and also mapping new OS's.

    The HPT licensing also is kind of restrictive. You need to buy a license to read/modify and save a file even.

    The list goes on and on (more A6 coming too).

    The support is very friendly here too. Thats a big plus from feedback we have had.

    Support is difficult, especially when you are someone who prefers to be locked away in a dark room with the only company being computers.
    I'm glad to see this thread didn't head down the usual path it would have years ago. One important thing to note is EFILive has from day one offered a free download of our software for anybody to use, you get to try before you buy as it were.
    Need official EFILive help, please go here.
    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.
