Hi.

Short story long, i have a friend that bought manual 2000(pre Facelift) 325 with a blown engine in which we have now transplanted the engine from an 02(facelift) Auto 330i.

Before planning the swap i did some research and came to the conclusion that with the DME, EWS and key from the 330i it should be possible to remove the automatic part from the vehicle order and then just use that in the old car.

Engine is now in and starts with the old DME and EWS

However after trying to gain access to change the vehicle order via NCSExpert without luck on the 330 DME, i am no longer sure if that's the way to go. And am all so thinking if it would be easier to just flash the old DME with 330i tune.

What would you guys do? just flash the 3.0 tune or get the the new DME and EWS to work in the old car?

Thanks

You don't use ncs-expert. You use winkfp. See if your winkfp has zusbnumber 7551616 available

Sorry im still quite new at this.

So if i see get this right you recommend flasing the existing DME with the 330 "tune" useing winkfp?

I watched your video guides, and got my SP-Daten updated to V60.1

But if i enter comfort mode - Identify ECU famiily and enter 7551616 i get:
Error 704:

Error on determining the ZB number

So i had time to tinker with this yesterday evening, and found a matching Zusb via BMWfans where the hw number matched the ecu(MS43)

I was also able to read the current config number from the ecu in WINkfp, bit when trying to program the ecu i get a "ecu does not answer" message.

So at this point i am not sure if the problem is a bad K+DCAN cable(cheap of amazon) of if the ecu actually needs to be in boot mode(none of the guides i have seen suggest that it needs to)

Allso all the guides tell you to enter you VIN in WINkfp but i dont se the option to do so after selecting the Zusb file.

Hi,

Could you share what you had to do in order for winkfp to show this most recent ms43 firmware flash ?

I***8217;ve download and tried daten files for e39 e46 and e53 , imported them into the tool but it doesn***8217;t recognize this assembly code nor does it let me pick it from list (not there ).

Thanks !
