How does it work as far as flashing a code? Say I came across a TBE relativly cheap, but didnt have an AP. Is it possiblt to have someone flash me a map, and then disconnect the AP while still keeping the map on the ecu until I could get a protune?

The AP can only be mated with one car at a time (as far as I know, I haven't really tried searching for AP hacks since I own one)...

So no, no you couldn't

What you could look into is opensource flashing using tactrix cables, but I'm not sure how far along they are...

I know that's what I used when I had my Eclipse...

When an AP is married to a car the VIN number is copied over, and if the VIN does not match from AP to car... it is a no go situation. That is how they get away with the one car at a time.
Here is a link to opensource... this might be worth a look.
