Should I buy MPPS V18 or MPPS V16 for ECU tuning?
Something different between MPPS v18 and MPPS v16 ECU tuning tools.... Better to read the mpps comparison below if you wanna buy one, mpps v18 or mpps v16.
MPPS V16 clone
MPPS V18 china clone: one more cable for ECUs not supported OBD
Generally, mpps tuning tools offer ecu reading / writing operations and checksum support.
But MPPS V18 adds something new...
Excellent recovery functions. In some cases MPPS can recover ECU’s which others tools can not even make communications with.
On certain controllers it even works when with no program is present (a blank memory).
Selectable full / partial reading and writing when the ECU allows this function.
Selectable reading / writing speed.
Writing “changes only” function for faster programming (when supported by the ECU).
Auto detection of K-Line/CAN, and option to bypass and force preferred means of communication.
Temporary bypass of immobiliser to allow flashing on the bench on ME7 systems.
Boot mode support for ECU’s with C167 and ST10 processors.
EEprom read/write functions for some ECU’s are included.
VAG MEDC17 TPROT level checking without opening the ECU.
Mppsv18 adds MultiBooton Marelli ECUs
This module supports advanced functions on Marelli ECU’s:
Read / Write of Micro, Flash and EEprom without using a BDM programmer!
Fiat 6F3 – Full Read / Write Micro, Flash and EEprom over K-line and CAN.
Fiat 6JF – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over K-line.
Fiat 8DF – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over K-line.
Fiat 8F2 – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over K-line and CAN.
Fiat 8F3 – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over K-line and CAN.
Fiat 8GM – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over CAN.
Fiat 8GS – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over CAN.
Fiat 5SF3 – Full Read / Write Flash and EEprom over CAN.
Fiat 5SF3 – Full Read / Write EEprom over K-Line.
Fiat 5SF8 – Full Read / Write Flash and EEprom over K-line and CAN.
Fiat 5SF9 – Full Read / Write Flash and EEprom over CAN.
Fiat ME7.9.10 – Full Read / Write Micro over CAN.
Fiat ME7.6.3 – Full Read / Write Micro over CAN.
Opel 6O2 – Full Read / Write Micro, Flash and EEprom over K-line and CAN.

Opel 6JO – Full Read / Write Micro and EEprom over K-line.
MPPS V18 adds Tricore Boot mode
This module adds boot mode support for controllers with the tricore processor:
Auto detects ECU and processor type. No need to select from list, everything is automatic!
Read/Write of all memories Eeprom, Irom, Xrom (where possible)
Patch function for OBD Flashing of TPROT ECU’s (supports only VAG at the moment)
TPROT / DS check feature, for testing if TPROT is active without opening ECU.
Supports Bosch upto TP12
Supports Siemens (current only for ECU’s without password protection),
Support for unlocking of VAG Simos PCR and Simos 8.
Checksum Correction supported for Bosch MEDC17.

From the picture of mpps packages above, it’s easy to find that, a colorful cable is added to the mpps v18 kit to support cars that are even not able to read/write via OBD.
MPPS V16 vs MPPS v18 china clone:
wins in functions and connections. It can read and write more ecu types through CAN/ K-LINE/OBD/BOOT (Tricore boot, multi boot
But for personal diyers, if just for some specific ecu that both support, Mpps v16
should be ok, same as mpps v18 and save a lot.
