I don't exactly want to buy Windows XP to use via Leopard on the mac, but I am really considering it. Your thoughts.
I'm doing it right now. EcuFlash will work on a virgin computer, but it needs to be the only tuning/ECU communication software installed.
I'm using VMWare Fusion to run WinXP. Inside XP, I'm running EcuFlash and Enginuity to do the ROM editing and flashing. I end up needing the WinXP version of Excel to run a lot of the crazy spreadsheets people come up with. I do all my general log analysis (like all the graphs I keep posting) come from Excel on the Mac side.
Basically, at this point, you're going to need a windows install to tune. That being said, a MacBook (pro or not) is the best hardware I've ever used for running both OS X AND Windows.
Just get one and you won't regret it.
