    So to be fair they do seem to be in business, however, I think the days are gone as compared to when Joe Hoppen was in the MTM wheelhouse.
    Back around 2001 I spoke with Joe (now deceased) on numerous occasions about my Bi-Turbo S4 and ended up getting an excellent 350hp tune for that car.
    The car is long gone but I am wondering what type of development is going on at MTM these days with Joe gone, too.
    I just wanted to see if they can chip my TCU, if not then I will have to go 034 way.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead.
    I just got off the phone with Jose at MTM USA.
    They are based in Miami.

    He said they do still offer the ECU and TCU tunes, but they must ship it to Germany and back, to the tune of a 2 week lead time.

    He also requested my VIN number so he can get a current list of parts still in production. Nice enough guy, though, picking up the phone on a Saturday afternoon.

    If anybody wants it,

    We had few choices back in the day.

    Fast forward and we see who is left supporting this platform with current product offerings.

    034 gets my vote for ECU and TCU tunes.

    They will need stock ECU to flash right? Anyone try EPL?

    That was just for the chip itself, you still had to solder it into your TCU and risk frying your TCU. There are some other companies offering TCU tunes now, believe they can flash it if you send it in. TCU is fairly easy to access, in the passenger footwell under the carpet.

    Das ist nein na gut das ist ScheiŖe!!! / that really sucks! Meh! I would’ve love to solder that Chip on TCU! Back in the early 2000s I used to do well let’s say I used to do digital odometer calibrations so I am very well-versed when it comes to modules in cars especially BMWs and jaguars because modules also needed to be addressed when you were adjusting / LOL / after reading that thread I went to 034 motorsports and saw that it’s well approximately $1000 so let’s see $125/ V-s A thousand dollars I love progress ;( ...T. (thanks for the information by the way it was an interesting read) - I am going to look around to see if I could find this chip I’m pretty sure and bit torrent I can possibly find something like this.

    You must be looking at the ECU/TCU package, $450 for just the TCU. Also Nubcake on here does a tune I think, maybe others. I run the MTM, and similar to the other ones I’m sure it’s nice to tighten up the shifts a bit. What really does it is upgrading the valve body pressure some to really snap the clutches, can be a bit jerky at times.

    You can find the MTM file online for free if you do some looking around.
    Might want to check nefmoto forums. It's kinda buried in there though.

    The chip itself is a 512kb AM29F400BB PSOP44.
    I'm sure that's enough info to get you set up if you have prior experience with electronics.
