You might need to make the ECU re-learn again.

email the seller on ebay and ask for a refund as item did not benefit the car as described. If he does not reply back too you then you should leave negative feedback.

The $20 ebay chips is just a resistor that can be got from tandy for 20cents..

I'll vouch for jason's J3 chips... That man is a legend with the EEC's... Its a fair bit over my head all this custom programming business... But what he knocked up for 200 bucks is awesome... Well worth it... can't even get a XH snorkel for 20 bucks... why on earth would there be a 20 dollar chip that gives, what is it? 20% or something stupid...

If it sounds to good to be true... Then it probably is...
