 **.bin** - The ‘Binary’ file. This is the actual file used by the ECU. It contains the code and calibration data used to run the engine. But, it does not contain the table scaling data, X+Y axis data, etc. This is the file you want to flash, burn to a chip, send to the Ostrich, etc. **.bin** - The ‘Binary’ file.

-**.mpt** - The ‘??’ file. This file is very similar to the .tpl in format, but the purpose is slightly different. This is essentially a table definition file. It is used to edit the binary file directly. This isn’t recommend, though, unless you are certain about what you are doing. Some functions in MP Tune will not work correctly on the binary file (adding data points, for example).+**.mpt** - The ‘Table’ file.

-**.tbl**; **.calx** - These 2 file types were used by D-Cal and CHeM respectively. They are functionally equivalent to the .mpt file used by MP Tune. That is, they are the table definition files to allow editing of the binary file directly.+**.tbl**; **.calx** - These 2 file types were used by D-Cal and CHeM respectively.

 **.s19** - The S19 file is a version of the binary file that is only used by some Motorola-style bootloaders. Most users will never need this file tuning with MP Tune. **.s19** - The S19 file is a version of the binary file that is only used by some Motorola-style bootloaders.
