What is RomRaider?

RomRaider is a free, open source application created for viewing, editing and tuning Engine Control Units (ECUs). RomRaider is written in Java and, as of version .20 alpha, uses XML to define ECU versions, meaning it is infinitely extensible and useable on any ECU you can retrieve an image from. Any information stored in your ECU (timing advance, fueling, boost, etc) may be altered, making your stock ECU nearly as powerful as expensive stand-alone units, better than piggy back units, and more functionality than commercial software costing in the thousands of dollars.

RomRaider is meant to be used in conjuction with Ecuflash.

WARNING: RomRaider is intended for use only by experienced tuners who understand the consequences. As with any tuning solution, the potential for engine damage is very high when altering your ECUs hard coded values. The use of appropriate equipment (ie, knock sensor, wideband oxygen sensor) is extremely important. Use at your own risk.
