The most obvious difference is the new kess3 offers both OBD tuning and boot / bench tuning direct to the ECU all from one tool. So, there is no longer the need to operate two tools. I.e. Kess V2 and T-tag. And as such there are no longer two separate subscription licences to get access to the latest vehicles for tuning and remapping.

But there is much more to this new tool. The new Kess3 runs on all new software. No longer using K-Suite. The new software is simply called Alientech Suite. It’s much faster to use, and much easier to navigate. Making the whole tuning process surprisingly quicker and easier.

Kess 3 Faster tuning and ECU Remapping

Due to the far superior processor at the heart of the Alientech Kess3 there is no more waiting around for checksums to calculate in the tuning. The new processing power of the Alientech Kess3 crunches the data much faster. In fact its proven to be 7 times faster than the Kess V2

No Need for so many cables

The new Kess3 has less unique car cables, capable to more tuning and programming with the standard OBDII car cable

Bespoke protocol configuration

Unlike the Kess V2 and K-Tag, there is now more choice in protocol and software activations with the Kess3. Motorbikes have now been separated from cars. So you are not having to purchase bikes if you don’t want them. And for Boot / Bench tuning you can now choose activation by vehicle type. I.e. Cars / Trucks, Marine etc. Unlike the K-Tag which was divided by ECU type. This now makes it much easier to understand, select and pay for just the vehicles you are interested in tuning.

You will still be able to use the Kess V2, but there will be no more updates and ongoing support. For this reason, there are now no more subscriptions services available for Kess V2.  Therefore, you can’t add a new subscription to the Kess V2.

In better news, if you have an Alientech Kess V2 there are some great trade in offers available against the new Alientech Kess3. The trade in offer is only open for a limited time though.
