Sorry for the "Noob" question, as I'm coming from Vipers, Vettes, and Mustangs but does anyone offer a tuner where the ECU does NOT have to be sent in? and if so, will it be AS worth it value for HP wise?

Thanks

there are piggyback systems. do they work as well as a downloaded tune? hard to say as most with tunes or piggybacks seldom provide accurate info.

piggybacks a very crude solution, they modify the signals in/out of the ecu by a factor of X based on some lookup table. The problem is the stock ECU is a complex piece of technology with thousands of maps for each condition/situation, so you might get some unexpected conditions which might lead to some unexpected results, like having a piston through the side of the block.

We offer our calibration that only requires the ECU to be sent in one time, after that it can be OBD flashed from then on out for any future revisions or updates!

Our turn around time is typically same day if we recieve the ECU in the morning, or next day if receive the ECU in the afternoon. For instance, Ship it to us on Monday, we get it Tuesday AM, unlock it, flash on our calibration, and ship it, You then get it back by Wednseday.

M-Tuner is the only stable OBD flashing utility for McLaren. But it also offers full live map switching, rolling anti-lag, dyno mode, read/clear faults, and high speed datalogging. All these options are unique to our device in this market. Calibration notes for the 12C can also be found here, if you are interested.

If you have any questions please feel free to email us anytime!

It's not hard to remove the ECU, and well worth it.
