In bench select the correct eeprom family for identification.

2.

If failed, try OBD mode.
But for older CP04/CP14 it’s is better to use OBD protocol module 50 as EDC17U01/U05/CP04/CP14 use can communication.
WITH ECU IN CAR :
1. ID ECU INFORMATION
2. SEARCH VZ-PERFORMANCE FOR VR FILE
3. MODIFY FILE
4. WRITE FILE
There is no “vr mode”
Vr simply means the file is virtual and not from the actual ECU
1. After identified you have hw and SW numbers
2 go to vz-performance and search for the file you need with the details
3 download the file and modify for tuning etc
4 write file via obd
