1. They're most likely just advancing your timing a whole heck of a lot more than you should.
2. They're probably using horribly incorrect fuel amounts.
3. Just wait till your OBD2 ECU converts BACK to stock settings WITH the chip still in place. Then you'll see that the $(insert amount paid) you spent was completely wasted.


+3 no chips


Your best be would be to grab an OBD1 ECU, conversion harness and get it tuned. That way, you get "safe" power that lasts.

Re: Chipping a N/A H22a4?

It uses the IAT. It just makes the ecu think the air coming in is more dense than it is, resulting in less fuel consumption, and a better burn. I would'nt be surprised if the stoich is better than the factory...

P.s. Cheap = Cheap, a of couple of wires and resistor doesnt require a 6 figure salary to afford. Broke = the condition of my heart from getting trashed from someone 3000 miles away... Huh yeah right.

chips are not bad as long as you take the extra step and tune your engine since that is the ultimate point of getting an ecu chipped and socketed

Re: Chipping a N/A H22a4?

I say enjoy your bolt ons and if you really want some more umph save a bit of money and get a strong tuning software/system and go at it with another ECU.
