Is there a way, on a pre 2008 Elise or Exige to perform a DIY ECU dump WITHOUT buying the proprietary scan tool? Any fancy OBD scanners, hacks, etc?


I've spent (too much) time on the forum and Google trying to get a definitive, final answer to this question, but am not convinced. I'm sorry if this has clearly been stated already. Thanks.

welcome to the forum. searching works best via Google while using the 'site:lotustalk.com' tag in addition to your query.

if you're willing to trust some random internet persons code, I've prepared a Java program that can poll the performance data like you're asking for.

if you want more defined instructions, feel free to pm me once you've reached five posts.

one caveat to the above: I've not tested the ecu data dump on any car besides a 2005. i expect it to work, but it may not. there is no risk if it fails apart from wasted time, so my recommendation would be to just give it a try.
