Anti Tuning Remaps

processor ant remap

Mid 2009 saw the introduction of protected Bosch EDC17 & MED17 using an Infineon Tricore processor. It is oftern said that these new Tricore ECUs cannot be remapped as the vehicle has "Tuning protection" or the ECU itself is "Locked". This is simply NOT true! There is no such thing as a "Locked" or "Anti-tuning" ECU, however there are many inexperienced or poorly equipped tuners that do not understand these ECUs and rather than admit they have no knowledge on these latest systems they simply say it is not possible.

Car Tuning Clinic has a safe and reliable solution for programing these ECUs. We use a Bootloader technique, pictured above, which involves the removal of the ECU from the vehicle and making a direct connection which allows the reading & writing of the Tricore processor. This is the only safe way to remap any EDC17 or MED17 ECU because please remember these ECUs were introduced firstly without any protection (pre 2009), which would allow OBD flashing but during normal servicing or warranty repairs the dealers do have the ability to update the old non protected ECUs. With the advent of the new "Anti-tuning" versions, any attempts to reprogram your ECU via the OBD (On Board Diagnostics) can cause fatal damage to your ECU.
