VCM Suite now accesses EFI Live tunes

Postby Yortt » Tue Jun 07, 2016 12:48 pm

VCM suite can now download LS1 EFI Live custom operating system tunes and license them and use the VCM Suite editor to change parameters and load back into the car.

Does anyone else have any information on this?

wouldn't surprise me if they do, more business for them if you have their software and can read the competitions info out of a car!

Also interested in this. I've got the latest VCM suite updates yet last week couldn't license a vcm due to EFI Live been present.

Would be a cool feature for sure

Only works wth version 3 of VCM Suite software.

I come accross it by accident I automatically downloaded a tune from a PCM thinking it was a VCM operating system it downloaded and it was then I noticed it was a 1290005 operating system which is an EFI live operating system. I also believe other EFI live operating systems are covered.

I have searched the web nothing on it I can only assume EFI Live are aware of it. I would imagine this will not make people with EFI Live users very happy. I thought EFI Live and VCM Suite were competitors!

Maybe it will only write if the ecu has a matching efi live os. This would force the purchase of efi live and the licence for a controller but allow the customer to use which ever software they chose. I think you will find that the larger customers own both hpt and efi live.

I have both EFI Live and a supposidly "Unlimited 5.7 LS1 license" wich does not cover the license for the software to cover the EFI Live operating system(covers everything else LS1).
You need to license the PCM then you can write to it with the 1290005 O/S. Same applies to Flashscan.

Even if you pay the upfront cost for an "Unlimited LS1 5.7 license" it does not cover the EFI live operating system licensing they get you twice.
