What is Chip Tuning?

Chip tuning refers to changing or modifying an erasable programmable read only memory chip in an automobile’s or other vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) to achieve superior performance, whether it be more power, cleaner emissions, or better fuel efficiency. Engine manufacturers generally use a conservative electronic control unit map to allow for individual engine variations as well as infrequent servicing and poor-quality fuel. Vehicles with a remapped electronic control unit may be more sensitive to fuel quality and service schedules.

 

What’s the difference between MAGPro2 x17 Master and Slave version?

Slave account must be matched with a master tool (another customer) and read and write files crypted, only master can decypt it. Don’t have the possibility to use all kind of services that we offer. The Master has no limits. You can choose to purchase master version or slave account, tool is same.

Slave > read and write crypted files only (Slave files are protected)

Master > can crypt it and decrypt it (Decrypt means – to turn them into clear files)

Only difference is that MAGPRO2X17 Slave Kit don’t have the plugin MAGP1.18 to unlock the password.

 

Does MAGPro2 x17 Master and Slave version has same hardware?

The MAGPro2 X17 tool is essentially the same, the Software for the two tools is different.

 

What’s the difference between KESS V2 Master and Slave?

Master system is unencrypted and therefore able to save, read and write files independently without being tied to or dependent on any other machine. For most a Master system is the logical choice if they intend to develop their tuning career and buy MOD files from various sources.

Slave system does almost everything that a Master system does except that whoever sells you or is the Master to the slave is the only person or company able to supply you MOD files that will work with your machine.
(Files for slave machines are encrypted and only files from the supplying Master will work).

 

What’s the difference between K-TAG Master and Slave?

Master system is unencrypted and therefore able to save, read and write files independently without being tied to or dependent on any other machine. For most a Master system is the logical choice if they intend to develop their tuning career and buy MOD files from various sources.

Slave system does almost everything that a Master system does except that whoever sells you or is the Master to the slave is the only person or company able to supply you MOD files that will work with your machine.

What’s the difference between KESS V2 and K-TAG?

KESSv2 is a hardware interface that allows communication between Car, Bike, Truck or Tractor ECU and PC. Through the OBDII connector, is possible read and write the ECUs using the CAN bus, J1850, J1708 or K-Line.

K-TAG is a hardware interface that allows communication with ECUs on the bench. We have merged J-Tag, Motorola BDM/Nexus and Bootloader Mitsubishi/Infineon Tricore/ST communication lines into a single product. K-TAG allows you to read each file: microprocessor, flash EPROM, EEPROM, and to save them all in a single protected file. K-TAG is used for reading EEPROM without OBD throught MCU. Not all ECU’s can be read by OBD, some ECU’s need boot mode connection or BDM. So it covers much more models than KESS V2.

 

What is BDM?

BDM or Background Debug Mode is the process of connecting directly to the circuit board of an ECU, using a specially engineered jig to hold the ECU in place while data pins are connected to the circuitry.

 

Can MAGPro2 x17 read TCU?

Yes, MAGPro2 X17 works both on ECUs and TCUs.

 

Do i need to buy KESS V2/K-TAG software separately?

Yes, hardware and software are sold separately.

No protocol activation is included by default.
