The EK1 Lite is a portable device that can be connected to the vehicle when necessary for live data, fault code reading and ECU read/writing. You will need to purchase a tuning file from us if you want us to tune your car.
SXTHNK have kept the most essential, preferred functions of the EK1 Pro and made a more affordable, feature rich device. EK1 Lite is the only handheld tuning device on the market with specific support for KIA and Hyundai models. It's the new standard for tuning!

SCREEN AND BODY
The EK1Lite features a full colour LCD panel and button style navigation. The interface is easy to navigate and allows users to quickly view data and write tuning files.
EK1 Lite is equipped with an SD Card for easy data transfers. Insert the SD Card into your device (PC/Tablet/Mobile) to transfer tuning files, updates, and data logs. No need to fumble around with clunky desktop-only software.

SXTHNK have updated the ECU read and write protocols to enable remote unlocking (no more unlocked spare ECU required) of the ECUs featured in the i30N, Kona N, Sedan N, Stinger GT, G70, G80, and more. There is even added support for the Hyundai 7DCT TCU as well as the Hyundai 8AT TCU found in the Stinger/G70. Continued updates for new ECUs are also in progress.

I've had a Racechip for 4 - 5 years in my i30, which was great. I was a bit hesitant to purchase the EK1 as I was concerned I wouldn't notice much difference in performance. My assumption was completely wrong and I genuinely wish I bought the EK1 sooner. The results are night and day and my car feels much smoother and overall is more fun to drive. I had a crackle tune added too just cause why not?
The device is incredibly easy to use and Tristan is awesome to work with. Appreciate all the back and forth and patience on his end as it was a bit confusing to use at first, after about 10 minutes of playing around with it and Tristan's help it becomes so simple. Now that I am familiar with it, I have multiple files at hand that I can use to flash back to stock when servicing or to the tuned files whenever I want. 10/10 product, 10/10 service, if you're unsure on getting the EK1 for whatever reason, I strongly encourage you to bite the bullet and buy one. You will not regret it at all.
Product is top quality and very easy to use.
Backed by outstanding support from Tristan and his team.
If you're looking to upgrade and go fast then this is your product.
Excellent product and even better after purchase support
I purchased the ek1 + tune and revisions, Plug-n-play into the obd2 port, A cinch to learn and use
Support from Tristan is phenomenal, Can’t say enough good things about it.
Highly highly recommend.
