    Tuning Cable - Does it matter?

    Can I use the trifecta cable for the PFadt tune? It's $100 cheaper.

    How about any old OBD2 to USB Cable? Are some readers and some flashers? eBay has tons of both. Some OBD2 Flashers are only around $50.

    Thanks for any response in advance.

    we discussed this excessively b4 and came to no conclusion actually cuz no one wanted to try the cheap cables to tune. so i suggest you do that. and from what i know the pfadt tune is based on the trifecta one and uses the same software? someone correct me if im wrong (i still say its the exact same tune just rebranded). so the cable should work.

    The BNR tune is the Trifecta one, Pfadt are separate and tuned the car on their own.

    we know that. i still stand by what i said tho. i think theyre using the exact same base tune, just modding it slightly for whatever hardware they drop in the car.
    but regardless of that, i think the cable is interchangable as well.
