    Ok so I'm getting into the coding game for my retrofits but which power supply/regulator are you guys using?
    I WAS going to use the PSU from a PC DIY style but wouldn't trust it.

    Links/specs/videos are all appreciated :-)

    Regards
    Aaron

    For coding you dont need a psu.
    For flashing the ecu with updates you will as flashing can take a long time as opposed to coding which only takes seconds.
    And DONT use a pc power supply as you wont get the amps needed to sustain ecu flashing.I have coded a few things to my car and never used a psu.
    Just make sure your battery is in reasonably good shape.
