    Thanks guys.
    That's what I thought, Tre.
    Is the V7 software free, Joecar? Is V7/V8 worth it for an EFI Live noob like me or should I just stick with V2 for now?

    High chance I'm going to send $679 to DrkPhx very soon via Paypal..

    V7/V8 software is free (downloadable from EFILive forum and/or from EFILive website), and is necessary.

    What Joe said:

    FlashScan V2: physical hardware unit with USB and OBDII cables, acts as the conversion from the laptop to OBDII, must be purchased to tune your vehicle(s), stores your VIN license information
    Scan, Tune programs: software, available free of charge from EFILive.com and/or EFILive forum (beta software), used to setup scanning dashboards and actually edit the controller data.

    Thanks again guys. I'll check out that link tonight, Joecar. Quick question; what does the V2 use for power? Its own battery or the cars battery?

    Update on topic..
    I sent DrkPhx $679US the other night via Paypal.. and now he's saying he won't send me it until after 21 days when he gets the money (payment is pending) - though if he sends me it now he'll only have to wait 7 days to get the money.. but he doesn't trust Paypal for some reason.

    Just have him transfer the $$ to his bank account, takes 2-3 biz days for me. Then the $$ will be in his bank account and he can ship it out.

    When V2 is connected to laptop/PC it used USB power.
    When V2 is connected to vehicle OBD-II port it uses vehicle power.
    V2 has no power of its own.

    Thanks, but I'm pretty sure he won't want to do it.
