    I will try to make this short .
    I thi k i know the answer but will ask any way .
    Daughters car was damaged when car was srruck by a deer at freeway speeds .
    Left side damage ,they say the ecm needs replaced .
    Car had a Cobb tune ,unknown any more than that , and she does not have the hand held .
    Will the dealer be able to extract the Cobb tune and flash it to the new ecm ?
    I personally think they are feeding her a load of poop.
    Car drove home from the crash scene and to the dealer under its own power .

    My belief is , no tuner , no way to recreate the tune in the new ecm .

    I'm pretty sure you're SOL without the device. All the dealer can do is flash back to stock. A pro tuner might be able to pull it though.

    If the car is driving fine and no codes are being thrown I'd keep the current ECU in it.
