ECUFlash instead of Enginuity !!!!


I am finding the non existing support, non existing vista support and lack of documentation with enginuity a bit of a challenge for the future. Also the need to first make changes in enginuity and then to program the ecu using FDT makes it too difficult in real world tuning projects.

Having spent some time to look alternatives come accross with Ecuflash which does the same as enginuity but also has an integrated ability to flash Renesas sh ecus. Currently it does only support sh7055, but having exhanged some emails with Colby who has written the software he has promised to look into making a kernel for sh7052 available too so that we can use those pushbuttons to flash the ecu directly from the mapping software. Anyway the .xml syntax is slightly different to enginuity - nothing major really, just simple things like: "address" instead off "storageaddress" and  no "0x" prefixes on the hex values.


What do you guys think  ? I am very tempted to convert xml and start to use ECUFlash.

You can download the software from here:

Having used ECUflash with my wrx it would be a better tool to work with than the FDT software.

I will have to check it out.

The Enginuity.org site has been down for months now. Have to wonder if its ever really coming back.

Yes, colby was willing to look into building a flashing support for busa ecus - but that requires him to have a spare ecu which we could not find.

Additionally as busa has cylinder specific maps for most of the fuel and twin maps for ignition using ECUFlash should not have made the tuning much more easier without some major development by Colby.

Having figured out that I decided to put some effort into writing a software of my own - its as easy to write a software as it is to learn how to parametrize other. When I can get my own bike to dyno will make the ECUeditor to something that is useable a wider audience. Today it has only fuel mapping and raising limiters. - unless someone else can provide an ecu to colby and convince him to do some changes for generating a mapping tool which does not require changing each individual cylinder.
