I have a question for Tom (or whoever can answer..)

Is there any way to flash the ECU without a pricey flasher?

Example: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16921

This allows you to connect to the OBD-2 port via Bluetooth with a computer. Theoretically, it should be possible to load a tune file from a laptop with this cheap dongle.

I'm not looking for a free tune or anything, but it seems weird to spend $300+ on a piece of equipment you will only use once.
