ECU Cracked?

Saw a post online that the ECU has been cracked to allow tunes for F Series cars. Maybe a few more years and we'll have flashed for the N63.

Maybe I'll keep my 550ix as a daily and get another fun car in a year or two.

They did crack it but they cant code it now to protect others from seeing... so they are stuck in a dilemma... if they sell it... everyone will make copies and all the hard work and money will not pay back.

You can flash the original N63. It was the updated "TU" engine that took so long. But it's cool news! I read the same thing.
