    Dumb related question..... If some enterprising individual were to map out the E69, could they write a CAX file to make it tunable, or do the CAX files require base tuning support in EFILive to be able to work?

    No, the V7.5 Tune Tool does not understand the E69 file layout..........and probably never will.

    So I just noticed in the 'Resolved Issues' list for the current pre-release '2.E69 tune files no longer report errors when being opened in the V8 software.' and that it does recognize my E69 read... So does this mean that at some point you'll put yourself through the pain of mapping the E69 for the v8 software (If you haven't already)? I know 'the other guys' support it, and you didn't want to go through mapping it, however, to be fair, you guys also said 'WE WILL NEVER EVER SUPPORT THE LML. PERIOD. EVER.'.... Then it went to 'we can flash it but no editing' to 'full tuning support if you can get the base file'. With the LBZ, LMM, LML & E69 all being Bosch, I would think they're all relatively equally insane 'under the hood'...

    I know you can't comment on what's coming until it's out... Just speculating/hoping - I mean, why would you even bother having the software properly load the tune file if you didn't have some kind of plan to support it?

    I can give you this guarantee, I will NEVER spend one minute mapping the Bosch gas ECM's, can't say it any more clearly than that.

    Simple answer, EFILive (really Autocal) provides a very conveient means for delivering tunes. We have a number of customers who are quite knowledgeable on the Bosch gas ECM's who develop their own tunes with tools other than EFILive, we just provide them an alternative to ECM swapping. But as usual supporting 'just flashing' on these presents some issues (Boschisms), eg, who makes two different ECM's with four different unlock algorithms, madness!
