Removed my DME for bench unlock

Today i decided to remove my dme and will be bench unlocking it in the next week or so.
Took about an 1h30min to physically have it in my hand.

Finally i'll be able to tune it, im tired of waiting

Nice, I'm just as anxious and will most likely be doing the same soon. What's in the box in the last photo?

Man, this is awesome for those that are having trouble finding a shop that is able to bench flash our engine! Let us know how easy or difficult it is. I might do the exact same. I'm picky when it comes to people working on my car, lol. I'd rather do everything myself so I can sleep at night knowing 100% what all got done...

One that I found on eBay is only $95. I have no idea if it is the same though.
If that price is true, I don't understand why more local tuners aren't unlocking ECUs.

I also saw that as well. I hope OP is able to share more details or resources for us to learn how to bench our DME from home.
