This answer for the question whether Piwis 3 diagnostic program can work with Piwis interface tester II
It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.
The Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.
Originally designed for the VW ODIS system, the VAS 6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Porsche went cheap on this VCI for Piwis 3. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]
There is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI, to work with Piwis 3, unfortunately their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI. 2-3-4 thousand dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small operators. They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as in the beginning of the Piwis 3 phad.
They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]
Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi.
This is CarsFan’s money making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.
