I want to modify the ECU to either A get better fuel economy or B
limit the max speed that can be achieved. What is the exact process
for an OBD II type car? What equipment is needed(apart from a laptop &
OBD interface)? Is it possible to change these settings dynamically ie
while in motion?
There is no answer at this time.
