    Default VZ ECU Reprogramming

    Has anyone been able to reprogram their ECU in a VZ for greater power? I see powerchip offer to upgrade the firmware but it's very expensive.

    not sure as prices are witheld atm due to fluctuations in global economy, cause software is joint developed in US and here AU. Yeah simply have to get on the blower to guys at VCM Suite and go from there. Suggest getting the pro package (what im using) as yeah you have an I/O interface, so u can then later down the track wire in a widebands, map and other sensors for added realtime logging if ya wish.

    I personally wouldn't really be interested in any monitoring or anything, I just want to get rid of the f**king torque management bulls**t.
