    Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    If you get into tuning your MS43 DME you will most likely want the ability to flash your ECU on the bench. (without plugging it into the car) It's convenient, especially for Full 512kb DME flashes, which would otherwise be a two-person job. I spent a few days learning how to build my own cable...
