Is there a truly free ECU programming setup?

    So I know that Uberdata doesn't cost anything but it is not really free. I know that some people have used it without problems but it makes me nervous to use software to tune an investment like a car where I have no recourse. With Hondata, at least I have paid for it and we have some kind of contract covering mistakes they make (not counting problems created by mis-tuning). Is there a product out there that does the same thing where the source code is available?

    i dont think there is an open source tuning solution, but crome is a great freeware program that will really allow you to tune your car. Its only downside is it wont let you datalog for free.

    If I am going to go with a closed source solution, I am going to pay Hondata so I have someone to hold accountable if there are software problems. Unfortunately that means I have to run Windows on a laptop, I wonder if Hondata works under Wine...

    crome FTW. uberdata sucks. I hate that program.

    so long as you don't need datalogging, there's no need to pay for crome pro.
