ECU Tuning Tool Buying Guide

Which ECU programming tool should you take? Ktag or Kess v2,or MPPS cable or FgTech 4 galletto v54 or KTMflash or KTMOBD or Renolink Renault ECU programmer?

Usually, it depends on what ECU list it has and connection/communication you want.Go on your reading and  know more.

 

IMG: The left one cable is KTMflash and the right one cable is KTMOBD cable.

KTMflash mainly works on new Siemens & gearbox, it needs to desolder ECU when reading and writing.
KTMOBD mainly read and write the Japanese ECU like Denso.

IMG: This one cable is V1.52 Renolink Renault ECU programmer via OBD.

Renolink has many features like UCH matching, airbag programming, engine ECU programming, key coding, key deletion, dashboard coding, eprom and flash reading and writing in Renault and Dacia vehicles.

So, KESS v2 supports obd2, boot
MPPS v18 works for obd2, Multiboot, Tricore for Marelli ECU’s
KTAG can work for bdm, j-tag, boot
FgTech Galleto v54 4 (or Fgtech 2) work no issues with obd2, bdm, j-tag, boot

So, 3 options are available for OBDII connection: mpps v18, kess, fgtech
3 options for BOOT: kess v2, k-tag, fgtech galletto
2 options for BDM: ktag, fgtech
2 options for JATG: ktag, fgtech 4/2
Only 1 way for Tricore: MPPS V18!

That is why you need buy more than one ecu programmers.
