    Does my car have an AMD chip?

    Hello all,

    I just bought a 2000 s-2 I took it to Autosports werks in Denver Colorado to have a GIAC chip installed. The drove the car and without opening up the computer said I already must have a chip because it ran so well. A couple days later I opened the computer up to see what chip was in the car. There was nothing obvious except one of the chips had the following on it: AM29f800bb -70se 9952bba hh 1996 AMD. Is this a stock chip or is it an AMD chip? If this is an AMD chip does anybody have any info on it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would not have thought so as AmD are new to the states. unless it was shipped over to be chipped, but again, i doubt it. Could be just coincidence!

    Thanks guys that's exactly what I thought. Do any of you have a AmD chip in your cars? If you do what does it look like?

    Thanks again.

    The chip itself looks exactly like the original chip, reason? because it is! the software is only changed on the standard chip [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
