How much different is TunerCode from TunerProRT, or are they compatible?
Yes. You will need to upload the new firmware to the ECU. You will also need your firmware modified by Dave (TunerCodeized). He has a copy of your bin and I'll pass him your e-mail address. You will also need a modified XDF with the trigger points added (Dave or I can provide).
TunerCode is just the trade name for Dave's modified ECU firmware... not to be confused with the daughterboard firmware (although the two work together).
It's a bit confusing but here's how it works-
-The ECU runs your engine (duh!)
-It's firmware is the bin file you modify and upload to the emulator portion of the daughterboard
-You edit the data section of this bin with TunerPro
-TunerCode firmware is a modified version of the factory firmware that does special stuff
-If you own a RTv2 you own a license for TunerCode firmware
-The daughterboard also has a processor on it. This dude is the emulator, and also handled the 'extra' stuff.
-The firmware for this guy is open source, see wiki
-This firmware is the hex file on the wiki, and you need to update it to the current version on the wiki
-This firmware is rolling- watch for changes (or change the source code yourself if your really into this stuff)
We won't mention TunerProv5 or RomRaider for Nissan yet, that's more confusion.
