    Chip

    So I'v been looking on the bay for some easy power mods, and one of the guys at work suggested an ecu chip.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/REAL-Performan...QQcmdZViewItem

    Is this is the kind of thing? How effective is it? Does it actually work? How does it work?

    Any info at all would be useful
