My Ride: 2001 330XIT Turbo
325 to 330 DME conversion

I have been reading in the forums about DME and EWS flashing, which I think will be the route I go for my up and coming tuning of my turbo system.

However in the mean time I have a few questions.

I currently have my 330 running on my old 325 DME, I have not looked at which versions they are but the car is an 01 and the motor and ECU are from an 03 I think.

my first question are we able to flash ECU's at home with the proper tools now?

and if so will it be easier to flash a tuned 330 code over my current 325 ECU to keep the alignment?

or

will it be easier to swap ECUS (does this still require chip swapping?) and is ECU swapping still something that needs to be done at shops?


any links would rock I am down to read as I still need to understand BMW's systems a bit better.

Thank you

Thanks I will look into that program as well, I have a few others I want to try as well. does this program flash in a way that won't count towards having your ECU locked out? know anything about getting it/ downloading it?

Do you mean like the flash count? You can disable the writing and it won't count it
