Option 4: Fgtech Galletto Original

Fgtech Sim271

April – September 2018 software upgrade adds Tool password Tricore SIM271 MERCEDES

in Boot Mode Tricore

Yes, works well

ecu’s needed when you want to replace your cars engine ecu  with a used  unit.
Your original ECU will have to be ”alive” ( ecu that will still communicate via diagnostics) and the replacement will be compatible (ideally the same part number).

(Fgtech clone won’t do it.)
