Enginuity v0.2.7b (Beta) is now released.
Jared Gould (qoncept) is the programmer/designer behind enginuity. He has worked and researched conscientiously in producing this software.
Please check the enginuity website for required "plug-ins" such as the tactrix SSM cable, latest JVM from Java, and ecuExplorer. All related links are available at the enginuity website.
For those of you who haven't heard of enginuity.
Enginuity is a free
, open source application created for viewing, editing and tuning Engine Control Units (ECUs). Enginuity is written in Java and, as of version .20 alpha, uses XML to define ECU versions, meaning it is infinitely extensible and useable on any ECU you can retrieve an image from. Any information stored in your ECU (timing advance, fueling, boost, etc) may be altered, making your stock ECU nearly as powerful as expensive stand-alone units, better than piggy back units, and more functionality than commercial software costing in the thousands of dollars.
Enginuity is intended for use only by experienced tuners who understand the consequences. As with any tuning solution, the potential for engine damage is very high when altering your ECUs hard coded values. The use of appropriate equipment (ie, knock sensor, wideband oxygen sensor) is extremely important.
In order to minimize problems, users are required to register and login before downloading files. I did this to help prevent people who don't know what they're doing damaging their engine/ECU with Enginuity. So.......
Don't flash an Enginuity-altered image to your ECU if you don't understand the values you are editing or are not willing to accept the risks of alpha software. Alpha status means this software is incomplete, untested and NOT in ANY way guaranteed. If you are simply downloading to evaluate and are not using another utility (ie ecuFlash) to flash it to your ECU, you aren't at any risk.
As always, we value your feedback. Please be discrete. We'd like to hear from you.
Good luck tuning!!
