RomEditor 3.1 and above supports the Transtronics Romulator real-time emulator.
The Romulator is priced at $180.
This real-time emulator does not require any external power source as
it draws its power from the ECU The emulator can be removed from the ECU
(or left overnight) and retain its program for about 12 -18 hours. Updates
are automatic and fast. Anything you change in ROM Editor is automatically
changed in the emulator
The Romulator is accessed via a standard serial port. You will need two
serial ports on your laptop for tuning. One for datalogging and one for
emulating. Most modern laptops are transitioning to USB. We highly
recommend the Keyspan USB
PDA serial adapter for reliability Try not to mix USB serial adapters.
If you already have a brand that works, get another of that brand.

- Select Transtronics Romulator from the emulation tab under settings
