I've been getting enough email regarding OBD-II performance
work, that I thought I'd answer to the masses..
YES, We are working on OBD-II.. there are 3 steps to this..
- Developing a proper method for reading and writing the
Siemens MS41.1 and Bosch M5.2 flash memories via the
underhood diagnostic connector
- Interpreting the existing program
- Optimizing it for performance...
We are concurrently tackling #'s 1 & 2
Once 1 & 2 are done.. a few days on the dyno will yield
a finish to #3 and a proper result :)
Please note: It's step #1 that everyone else is side-stepping
and I won't do that!
Siemens NEVER intended.. nor did Rob't Bosch intend for the
flash memory chips to be desoldered and hacked
NO, We will not release anything until it is up to Bonneville
Motor Werks standards (there will be no expediant solder jobs,
etc... only reprogramming thru the diagnostic port!)
I hope this clears things up a bit..
PS: Oh, yeah.. the ETA is 90-120 days for the Siemens (325i/M3)
MS41 series ECU's...
