Why buy KESS V2 V5.017 + KTAG V7.020 + ECM TITANIUM?

I should say KESS V2 V5.017 + KTAG V7.020 + ECM TITANIUM are good match, no one tool is perfect, but if one ECU tunner has all of them the tunning work will be more easier.

Kess V2 for OBD use & Ktag for Jtag /BDM / Boot:

KESS V2 V5.017 is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag

V7.020 is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).
With KESS V2 V5.017 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag V7.020 you need to take apart the ECU and open it, after you can make the read/write operation.


Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 V5.017is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG V7.020 is needed.


Kess V2 & Ktag difference in the vehicle coverage:

Toyota Denso 76F00XX ECU Protocol: KESS V5.017 No, KTAG V7.020 Yes


Some truck/tractor/motorcycle: KESS V5.017 yes, KTAG V7.020 supports much more.


One Car brand will have several kinds of ECU protocols, generally KTAG V7.020 can support more kinds of ECU protocols Than KESS V5.017!

Bosch me7.1 on 2,23 need to read trough protocol 64 I think , but on 2,47 read regular , choose on list model year hp engine code hit read work perfect no protocol need

this is the difference between 2,47 vs 2,23.

Ktag v7.020 review:

I try with edc16c31 smart 451, read write in bdm ok with ktag, read write ok in obd with kess.


I tested with a lot of edc17 in these day and read and write without problem.


I made a video with a edc17c50 bmw 120d f21 with gpt, read and write ok.
I have a fiat edc17c69 virgin (without software inside), this I can’t read.


My Ktag 7.020 is able to read and write EDC17C69


7.020 version runs faster and more stable.


Ktag 7.02 good working. no problem.


Ktag master 7.020 displays diagrams via words, not pictures. It’s better to understand0


I tried to read Bosch edc17c69 gpt Fiat 500X and not working, with ktag ori read and write ok.


I read a lot of edc17 and few edc17 with gpt and all read and write ok maybe there is a bug in sw/fw from alientech.
virtual reading is = servidor ALIen.
virtual reading id ecu , and download firmware.
Not real soft.

I compared 7.020 with my old 7.003. KTAG fw 7.020 adds 100+ ECU types and supports new car models e.g. Toyota 76FXXX, PSA 17.4.4, Ford E83, VW 17.5.5 (1766), Mercedes-Benz 276 ECU, Toyota 76F, etc. It should be a good budget i think.

The clone Ktag 7.020 can read my 2013 Opel Insignia EDC17C59

ECM TITANIUM V1.61 is easy programs for beginners:

1) Own some basic map-packs for a lot of brands so they can go quickly and add few %.
2) The newest has a free license with 18475 driver
3) The software starts a search to check the presence of compatible drivers both in our personal as well as in the online database
4) You can easily find the data stored in the file maps and the main rev limiter to increase the engine power, or simply the consumer to optimize.
5) Very easy to carry out programming function
