    Tech 2 update

    Just been to see a friend who's just checked my car out for any required vauxhall updates.

    It needed updating and I've just driven it home with a nice smile on my face

    Its got better throttle responce and has no flat-spots around 5-grand anymore.

    Worth checkin this out IMO .

    Works for me

    Told the mechanic friend about the one that was up for sale on ebay recently, and he was gutted because he missed it.

    Yeah it was up for about £800 iirc. But really you need T.I.S and a conection to Vauxhall to make it really cool for the updates.

    But then how much money could you make at Billing or sim updating stuff and reading fault codes..lol.

    I wonder if it would be possible to use a Tech 2 like that new Superchip widgit on Fords? If you get one which had the modified maps in you could make an absolute fortune, 'chipping' Vauxhalls as you go?

    Tech2 is Vauxhalls dignostic device that plugs into your car.


    And the updates are done by serial port coding so effectivley all tech2 is doing when you update the ECU is chipping it. Very few cars these days actually need anything physically changing it all done with EPROM chips.
