Discuss all things tuning in this section. News, products, problems and results.
Here is a fun project that I need some help with, I know there are literally thousands of different tuning solutions out there and I want to create a mega list that includes them all. To do so I will need your help, post below and I'll add it to the master list, be sure to include the website and if they make standalone or a reflashing solution.

Thanks Ludo and Kickerzx. Yeah Nistune is kind of in-between isn't it. Do you reckon there is a name for that category?
I would have placed Nistune as a reflashing system as it's just a chip that allows modification of factory tables. It isn't something that has been designed to work on any ecu other than nissan.
I just want mention hondata is that reflash or stanalone

I'd put Nistune into a modified OEM category. I'd also put Kalmaker into that category
Kalmaker for Australian (and some American) Delco ECU/PCMs http://www.kalmaker.com.au/ aftermarket ECU modification/software for Delco.
Stand alone ECU's:
- OMEX (branded GEMS I believe) http://omextechnology.co.uk
- Kawasaki kit ECU (based on Mitsubishi ECU)
- Yoshimura EM Pro (for Suzuki bikes)
- YEC Yamaha Kit ECU
- HRC Race ECU (for Honda bikes)
- Alpha Racing (for BMW bikes)

Our Russian solution, quite popular here, because of cheap price (around 120 - 150 USD)))
ELCAR (Janvar, Micas)
Apexi PFC still in game
Mine`s reflashed ECU
Ben, how about updating the 1st post, including all answers?
Hondata is reflash not a standalone Skunkek9y10 since ur using the factory ECU to make hondata work.
TwEECer for Ford EEC-IV and EEC-V ECUs http://www.tweecer.com/ It's an add on module and applications to tune late 80s to mid 2000s Ford EEC ECUs. Similar catergory as Nistune, Kalmaker, Hondata etc.

Hey guys, what would you consider to be the best reflashin/tuning software and hardware for:
European (VAG, BMW MB)...
Japanese (Subaru, Toyota, Nissan)
Any info will be greatly appreciated.
ECU Master (which is basically just a glorified Megasquirt 3)

SCT is available for only professional tuners (well here in aus anyway)
