Fgtech Galletto ECU Programmer Chinese Clone VS. European Clone

There are mainly two kinds of Fgtech clone ecu programmers on the market. One is Chinese clone, the other is European clone. Many forum members are wondering what is the difference between the two ecu chip tuning tools and which one is better. Below is a compare list complied by obd2eshop technicians.

1.PCB Comparison

Fgtech Galletto Chinese clone PCB board surface color is sliver, and components position are as below:fgtech-galletto-china-1 fgtech-galletto-china-2

Fgtech Galletto Euro clone PCB board surface color is golden and components position are as eblwo:

2. User Experience:

Fgtech Galletto china clone is no gold immersions but PCB and soldering quality is really very good, Fgtech galletto china clone have the same component of EU clone. Also I have 2 galletto. One with yellow relays and second one with black. Both of them works very good.

I test FGtech galletto V54 on Audi 2009, Tiguan 2009, Passat 2009 and Golf 6 2009. It supports not all ecus edc17, Sure edc17cp04 and edc17cp14 year 2009 can read-write in obd. But edc17cp20, edc17cp44,etc, etc same year, have tricore protected active, and if you write in obd, ecu bloqued. I think TProt on VAG are present from 05/2009 but is very random this option is most present on engine with low power and is not compeer to years or ecu type.The best way to know if tp is active is always bootmode and read tag on file.

Besides, I collected all those cars where galletto V54 Chinese worked in one of forum around me, and I’ve made ​​this list. I hope you might help.

Additionally, someone prefer fgtech v53 to v54, thinking v53 china with HW and SW upgrade is better than v54 china without upgrade.

fgtech Galletto Euro clone Test

You can change a lot of parts but will not be the same.
Details: this is my fg v53 test, when i rebuild HW i dont change U11-U15 because seller did not have them…now is changed


After SW upgrade I used it on many situation : k line (obd), can(obd), boot tricore on each ecu med17, mev17, mevd17, edc17c-cp-cv, boot st,bdm, jtag…always perfect without error.

PS: EU costs more.
