hi there
i have a eb xr8 its a ex police car ive noticed it has a chip
pluged into the ECU. did the police package get them from the factory.
or would it be a aftermarket one...
does any one know what these chips do?? eg. more fuel or advanced timing... im just curious would this be giving more kw than standard or different engine characterics.
any help would be appreciated..
thanks........ :) :)

Interesting...

So this is in the bottom of the ECU?

Do you have to run it on premium?

Can you take a pic of it or check it for any labels/markings?

hi
yea it plugs into the bottom of the ecu.
i do have to run it on ultimate or optimax
otherwise it pings bad..
im not sure about the timing because it used to
run at 26 deg . i recently changed tfi module
and now its set at about 19 deg it still goes the same
if i set timing at 26 deg it pings big time..
anyway would the chip have any thing to do with it?? :?
i will take a pic in a minute and i will post it in my gallery
thanks .... . . . . . . :) :)

Look a little like the chip ive got on my car... but different, lol.

Lol, think you may have stumbled onto something interesting here... I reckon you should get along to the Sydney dyno day and run it with/without the chip....

sorry cant be of any more assistance.

I think you'll find that "chip" has been put on after the cops had it.
Let me know what catch code your EEC is. It's the four character code on the EEC label. There is also a label on the left shock tower with the same code(if it's still there).
