Is it possible to Download a PCM tuner program from the internet, and get a cable to plug into my laptop and to my car? I think it would be a cool idea.

Yes but i was wondering if it would be cheaper to DownLoad a program rather than to buy an entire unit.

You can get software (Tiny Tuner comes to mind) that would allow you to edit PCM bin files, but you can't do squat with the software without the hardware to flash the PCM in car (which is where a Powertuner or HPT comes into play).
