downloading and experimenting for the last couple days (i know, Noob).
I pretty sure I get the concepts that are going on in my ecu pretty quickly. How to find
maps, how they work and how to edit them.
But one thing I dont understand is how do I get the EPROM out of my ecu and on to
my computer? Will and OBD work, or do I need to take my ECU out?
The "map files" are located in the EPROM, right?
ECU's are read either by OBD or BDM/Bench, most EDC ECU's have a Flash and an eeprom.
The Flash stores the Maps and the eeprom stores the immobiliser etc..
Not all ECU's are like this tho, Siemens tend to have a virtual eeprom inside the Flash.
To read by OBD you will need a programming tool like MPPS or KESS etc..
Thank you very much for you reply.
Will a VAS5054A also get the job done? I have read it's not possible, but i have access to
ODIS Engineering. It's kind of like regular ODIS but with this version you are able to
flash ECUs not only with original VW files but also custom made files, most likely original files
edited in WINOLS or any other map editing program.

- Can't afford (real) Kess v2
- Can't afford (real) MPPS
- Clones are definitely NOT an option
So Galletto seems the right choice for me. Does 139€ seem legit for a Galletto V1250?
Sorry if I am bothering you with my newb questions.

I just bought one from sjk digital chiptuning, a company located in germany, I'll let you
know how it runs.
Furthermore let's say it works and I read the data from my ECU, modify it and write it.
Will the IMMO cause me any trouble? Since it's my original data just a bit modified, one
would assume not, right?
Thanks for your replies!
