    I can change what I would call mostly fleet type parameters. Like speed limiter, progressive shifting, driver type things. Certainly not horsepower.
    I can do cylinder cut-out testing, forced regen. There is a few things you can do, I haven't fully explored it, I just wanted it to keep me away from the stealership as much as possible.
    If I get a code it will show me in the manuals what to check. I figure if it just keeps me away from the dealer just once a year I'm ahead for the money.
    But yes it is a pain that I don't have access to the SAM modules. There isn't anything in there that is critical to engine management. Stupid that you have to go to dealer to reprogram a switch.

    @Oscar. Did you ever find what you were looking for? Also what is the cost to get it all? Thanks for the update.

    I've been busier than all get out and haven't had the time to look further into it.

    Anyone know what level I would need to change the engine fan settings so I can install a manual fan? I know I need to change the software or the engine light will come on.
