Master or slave tool

Wednesday 25 May, 10:28

There are various chip tuning tools that are used for chip tuning vehicles. These can be divided into two types of tools: the Master tool and Slave tool. But what is the difference between the two tools and which one is right for you?

The Slave tool is cheaper than the Master tool. However, with this tool you can only read and write software files. It is not possible to open or modify the files with this. However, the chance when using a Slave tool is very small that something can go wrong during programming. A Slave tool is always linked to a Master tool that is owned by a tuning software supplier, such as MyChiptuningfiles.

 

 

The Master tool offers the possibility to read and modify the contents of the entire Engine control unit (ECU). However, it is a must to have sufficient knowledge about adjusting ECU software. Although this tool is more expensive than the Slave tool, there are more options you can do yourself when it comes to modifying the files. This can be very beneficial if you have specific wishes with the ECU tuning.
