you are able to do those changes with OBDLINK. just no tune for now unfortunately :(
Yeah, I didn't know about the tuning issue until after I bought the car. Kind of annoying. But if I won't error out when coding in the Body Domain Controller section, like what some people were reporting earlier, that is at least some good news in this saga.

some of the codes you need to seect the Z4 while other ones you can select Supra.

ecutek has no issues unlocking 120 cal. I unlock these all the time. This is not an ecutek specific issue there are zero unlock tools that work with the new physical harswere regardless of the software version.
I am on 120 cal, how does ecutek unlock? I thought you have to send the ecu for bench unlock and then use ecutek? I do have Ecutek and license, just need to figure out simpler way for unlocking without sending my ecu.

I have heard rumors that Ecutek will unlock 120 cal.

We just did 6 ECUs today, all 120s. You don’t even have to ship it. We offer remote unlock also. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Can you dm me? Also, I’m getting tune from Jeff or Marin, still deciding. Will they any issue with the way the ecu is unlocked?

Sure. Nope, no issues. One of the ones we unlocked today was for Jeff.

I have received quotes from $300-$700 for Ecu bench unlock which is outrageous. Why can’t the unlock be part of the tune? Especially the ECUs that can be unlocked.
Is it just me or I feel some type of a way with the support group for Supra?

Wow, even if you are buying the software and tune from them it’s an extra 300-700 to unlock it?

I was under the impression it wasn’t a very time intensive process. Maybe I’m wrong

If it was easy or the equipment was cheap, everyone would be doing it.

Yes, it’s additional cost to unlock on top of tune. The process is not complicated, takes about 5-10 mins to unlock from what I have read.

The process isn’t complicated at all. From what I have seen from Kies motors, the equipment isn’t that expensive to charge $300-$700 range. It should be done by ecutek as part of the buying ecutek and license for a significant amount.

Tuners are very specific on which vendors should be used for unlocking. I believe unlocking is unlocking so it shouldn’t matter.
Do you know if anyone has used their service and then got tune?
tons of people. Justin @ Twisted tuning is a forum member and he can answer those questions more specifically, but everyone who has used them has nothing but good things to say.

Thanks!! @Twisted Tuning can you confirm? I’m trying to go with Jeff for the 93 tune. I do have a deskey with 375 points, and would also need a deskey swap.
