    Another chip post

    Anyone understand German?
    What do you think of the 99euro 30PS 80NM chip?

    This site can translate web pages for you. Just tried it with your link and it has sort of worked. Not quite as indecipherable anyway! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Has anyone ever changed the actual chip in the ECU?
    This German e-bay web link is for an actual replacement chip. Just wondered if it was an 'easy' job and what problems might arise. I am more than willing to have a go and report any findings, just wanted any pros or cons, i.e. if the replacement chip didn't work, could it cause damage to the ECU or is it just a case of taking the chipped chip out and putting the original back in.
    Please comment.

    Me, every day, I use a few grands worth of equipment to do it and see some awful sights of others who do it supposedly knowledgeable!

    Easy job? Easy to mess up, I fix a fair few of the mess ups....

    I do think some people think it's welding and not soldering!

    Oh, just wondered, thought it might be a cheaper option. Oh well, back to saving up then.

    I do fix alot of f%* ups for other people... I'd not recommend pulling a 29F800 off with some wick and a weller personally!
