Boy, am I frustrated with ECUFlash

Let me start with this... I'm a pipefitter, not an electrical engineer or computer programmer. That being said, I can't figure out ECUFlash.


I just bought my first evo from a dealer, which is not stock and has been tuned by some unknown shop for the unknown previous owner, presumably in Texas. I bought a Tactrix Openport 2.0 cable to save the current map for safety before converting to speed density for a retune based on climate change.


I can connect, read/download the map, but I can't do anything with it besides save it. I have no idea if this will help me or the tuner down the road when it's time to retune.


I don't understand the TephraMod instructions. I want to learn, but everything I read is WAY more advanced than I am. I prefer not to just have someone do this for me.


This is where I'm at.


Please help me (in layman's terms)!

Not sure what I did wrong. Re-downloaded all the TephraMod stuff, ECUFlash, and followed the instructions again. Worked this time and saved the "base" map.

I did. I saved the one that should have applied to me in there. The second time around I put them all in there because I figured there would be no downside. Not sure if that was the issue or if I screwed up somewhere else but I got it saved. Next step is researching speed density.

I'm on the beginner stage too haha, so this is a little frustrating at the beginning but when I get mad I just take a walk, later I start reading again and sometimes I just re read and search for the terminology to be clear, if you want a mate to study count on me man
