The Workshop version comes with an set of tuning parameters superior to any other product on the market. Workshop extends the tuning capability to the OEM level (Calibrator level). This applies to both the PCM and the ZF TCM. We also allow editing of parameters the like T-MAP and Boost sensors which is not available to the Calibrators.

Licensing & Packages

Yes You need an internet connection to license a vehicle for any version. Once licensed you do not need an internet connection to edit of flash the vehicle.

A Vehicle license allows you to edit and flash your car an unlimited number of times (for Ford Falcon and derivatives outlined earlier). A License is locked to your PCM's serial number, operating system ID (OSID) and your username. If you change operating system you will be required to relicense the vehicle.

Yes. The tuned file is a PCMTEC proprietary file (.tec format). This may be exchanged with other PCMTEC users, they will be able to edit your tune and sent it back to you and vice versa. Only a person with a license will be able to flash the vehicle. This only applies to purchased version of PCMTEC, the DEMO version does not support this function.
