	All modern OEM ecus also have laptop capability.  It's just that
the general public does not get access to the appropriate software and
hardware tools.

takes alot (and I mean ALOT) of time and effort and expertise to calibrate 
these things to get anywhere near the drivability of a good OEM system.
