.exp the hell if I know what that is. .bin is the actual file that is loaded onto the chip. the max233 is to connect to the cn3 port, isn't it? I think I have one of those (the max233, who doesn't have a cn3 port)

.exp is a TurboEDIT Map export file. Used to share tunes between users.

.bin is the ECU code into which the .exp files are loaded. The .bin is burned to the chip, and used to run the ECU.
