      Does anyone have an XDF or .kp for 06a906032dl? Or know what offset to start with for any other definition files? Any help is appreciated!

      Why are you using a DL file?

      My ecu is a DL. Do I have other options?

      I'll check to see whats in the family, but usually you do.

      My ECU is an RN but I've used PL LP HN HS and a couple others. Mix and match on your own, but I've had success.

      I would love to try, but im scared ****less of bricking my ecu. I know there are ways of taking care of that, but still....

      I have the patience to tune, I did it on my 16vt. Didnt know my ass from my elbow about tuning, just some basic concepts.

      What I really need is someone local to give me a hand in the flashing and logging process. Tuning I would rather figure out on my own, but I feel one wrong move means a non-running car.

      It's a major bummer that for defeating the immo, you have to desolder the ST95040 chip in order to read the memory and edit that...

      Otherwise I'm still reading up on this on ECUconnections.com to learn to adapt my ecu on my one...

      But I'll try that later with a less important ecu..

      No, you don't have to de-solder

      I know, off topic...
      What software you to use for data logging with Win7 32bit?
      VAGcom to slow. ECUx gives me weired data (recently logged 2.7T, but some channels missing, some data looking not right, don't know what units it shows, etc.)

      are you setting up ME7logger ( with a dump of your ECU and etc? )

      Honestly, the thing is flawless for me.

      Me7logger is great when it works. It is minimal, so expect things like negative integers returned and little diagnostic info why. 20 sample per second!

      Is Me7logger different from the 'tune and log'?
      What version for Win7 32bit?

      I'm thinking about writing a section on grabbing the SKC code do be able to do adaptations. And maybe, just maybe, a section on flashing immo off.

      You're going to have to use ME7logger with the GUI if you dont know how to use the command promt. And if you didn't know it used the command promt, you were using the wrong software!

      props for compiling all the work onto here. It gives people a great base to start reading and learning before posting redundant questions over on nefmoto.

      Sadly the best way to learn is just doing with something like this. Unless you have someone who can explain everything to you as you go along.

      Everyday i learn something new about these cars and how the ecu works, but i've learned enough to have my stage 3 tune pushing about 340whp at 25psi. Sure it needs work, but i enjoy knowing i'm making the power based on my own work.

      Nope every ecu has multiple software versions, usually ever software version of ecu type has its own specific set of map definitions.


      You have to get a definition belonging to a file, and search and destroy on your file.
