It is putting a new tune into the the computer.

Should be better than a chip if done properly.



cheers
Phil.

What would you expect to pay for this?
I've been told that it can't be done on Toyotas except through a special chip.

Why would you want to if you have the right car?

We have a 4.2TD and it's fine for us. Haven't been stopped as yet because of lack of power.

The biggest problem is finding the money to do all the long range trips that we want to do. 12000K return for a Canning drive. And $800 (approx) for fuel in the middle.

And so they said about retuning my previous cars. Never saw it though.

But maybe it may happen.

Hey Twinkles, what are you pedaling now? Last I remember is you bouncing up the old Tiger Cat track having a wow of a time!

Chasing economy via flash tuning or chipping doesnt always work out, cause you usually get more power and use it, which seems to settle things back to where they were before.

All the best!

The Flash Tuning I have used in both a petrol and diesel vehicles was a unit from Volo
http://voloperformance.com/
I wanted a system that worked WITH the ECU rather than bypassing it's parameters.

I found an increase in useable power and in the case of the petrol Hyundai SantaFe better fuel economy as well.
With the Ranger (PJ ) the pulling power has increased as well as a slight improvement in economy , but a big difference in the auto shift points.
That is either from remapping the shift points or a better response in the motor.
I don't know which applies and I don't care, I'm happy with what it does.
I wired mine up via a looped join in the Flashgauge wiring loom and fitted a 4 pin plug as well .
That way I can disconnect either of the "readers" independently.
