Low price ECU tools advice: MPPS, Kess, ktag-trasdata and Fgtech
This post firstly collect ECU tunners feedback on the differences of MPPS, Kess, Fgtech and ktag-trasdata, then separately list Fgtech China clone feedback, finally list all the available best selling and good quality China clone Kess, ktag, MPPS and ktag. Hope it is helpful.

1.Kess (even china good clone)…more stable than Mpps on can-line and good job on recovery…mpps good job on k-line (sometimes and can-line)…fgtech (i hate this tool)-but sometimes save your as…and best ktag-trasdata-no obd but safe boot mode,pinout direct conection and bdm…i talk about low price tools.
2.KESS V2 is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag,
BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).With KESS V2 you programming directly
through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag you need to take apart the ECU and open it,
after you can make the read/write operation.
Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect), but
there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the
ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG is needed.
Fgtech Galletto ECU programming tool is perfect for both OBD use and BDM use. Fgtech Galletto is the no tokens limitation while KESS V2 and Ktag will use tokens.
In a word, being a professional ECU tunner, you need all above-mentioned tools.
- Fgtech China clone feedback:
Fgtech Galletto china clone is no gold immersions but PCB and soldering quality is really very good, Fgtech galletto china clone have the same component of EU clone.
Also I have 2 galletto. One with yellow relays and second one with black. Both of them works very good.
I test FGtech galletto V54 on Audi 2009, Tiguan 2009, Passat 2009 and Golf 6 2009. It supports not all ecus edc17, Sure edc17cp04 and edc17cp14 year 2009 can read-write in obd. But edc17cp20, edc17cp44,etc, etc same year, have tricore protected active, and if you write in obd, ecu bloqued. I think TProt on VAG are present from 05/2009 but is very random this option is most present on engine with low power and is not compeer to years or ecu type.The best way to know if tp is active is always bootmode and read tag on file.

K-tag KTM100 V2.13 Firmware V7.003 Master (Item No. SE80-D), its best quality with higher price, €385 + shipping cost:
FGTech V54 Galletto 4 Master (Item No. SE61-G), it is best selling, €37.99 +shipping cost,
FYI, what is the difference between master and slave version?
if you have master version you can work directly on the program you have write on the vehicle (tunning, egr off, ….) and rewrite after directly.
if you are a slave customer (who depend of a master (who do modificated), you read the programme (scripted by genius), you send it to the master, he do what you want (money paid) and he re-sent to you to write in the ecu machine.
it is expensive for the slave user who depend of a master.
