Que pasa?

The onyl thign I could recommend is OBDII diagnostic software. Basically you buy a few cables nad are able to hookup a laptop to your OBDII diagnostics port and are able to MONITOR vital engine sensors.

As far as tuning goes you've got me stumped. It's a Bosch ECU if that helps.

The dealer uses a computer called the Group Tester 1, a.k.a. GT1. The independent shop I work at has one but it was $16,500 so not many places besides the dealer have it. You can only change certain things with it, its main use is for diagnosis and trouble shooting, not programing computers.

I work for a dealership in the uk, the software is mega expensive, if bought from BM. I dont think you can buy a budget version.
