You could hit up @joedubs, he has a GSW 4mo with MPI and a DBV2. The community is really cool with helping you learn the ECU and the tuning process.unfortunately I am not a very Tec savvy person so all of this discussion is miles over my head but i would just like to commend the guys involved for getting something of the magnitude up and running. I recently stumbled onto this because I just picked up an alltrack as a daily and I want to run a small hydrid on MPI but Chris (tapp) doesn't seem to want to do mpi for the 1.8s. Thumbs up!!
Is that the pinout in the picture to un lock the ecu? or is that just what's necessary to do a general flash. I am trying to figure out how to unlock the ecu at this point. I also have a APR 91 tune on my ecu. There is no way to preserve it or back up the Simos 18 due to the programming and VR reading? I was able to read the ECU data with tactrix now I just need to know how to un lock itThat's correct.
There's also a better CAN interface for the pi by a company called seeedStudio. It's based on an updated chip. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same fit/finish/form factor as the PiCan though.
Fwiw, I'm using a piCan3 for all my headless logging, and most of my flashing. seeedStudio board I'm using for my bench setup

The tactrix openport also works great, is super fast, and is the closest you'll get to existing "laptop based" logging and flashing solutions.
HPTuners isn't open source. We can flash over their software to add better logging and open features, but realize you're still playing in their sandbox if that's the direction you go.
