The sub-dealer represents the entry level into the EcuTek tuner network. Customers visit your tuning shop with their vehicle (or you visit them) and you tune their car using your EcuTek ProECU tools. You also appear on the EcuTek website as an authorised tuner.
As a sub-dealer, you are provided with suitable tuned ROMs by your 'parent' EcuTek Tuner, and you use these to tune your customer's vehicles. This situation gives you the ability to tune vehicles without the risk associated with creating the ROM file calibrations for yourself.
You can program ROM files into a wide variety of vehicles, and you can use EcuTek’s high-speed data-logging features to relay tuning information back to the EcuTek Tuner whose files you use.
However, you cannot alter, edit or redistribute the ROMs that have been supplied to you by the parent tuner.
EcuTek sub-dealer status is particularly suited to the conventional ‘chip tuner’, and the makers/suppliers of standardised hardware kits (that typically include such items as exhausts, turbochargers and injectors) may also find it very useful to appoint sub-dealers.
Hardware kit resellers can be supplied with a hardware kit with a suitable matching ROM file, which gives them the ability to correctly calibrate the ECUs of those vehicles they are upgrading with their hardware.
