Tuning 156

Hey all,

what are everyone's views on 'tuning chips' that remap the ECU. Has anyone actually tried using them and can they **** up your engine?

If they are worth a go, as they claim to increase throttle response and increase your MPG, Why can't I find one for my PETROL alfa. Ebay is full of Diesel ones. Is it because you must have a Turbo?

I'm not ganna buy one, I'm just interested

Any ECU tuning "chips" on eBay are likely to be garbage.
Stay well away.

Your ECU doesn't have a replaceable chip anyway, it needs to be remapped directly.
