    Live remap if you can, it'll set your ECU up specifically for your engine and mods whereas a chip is usually (if I am right) more generic.

    Depends what engine you have. Normally its only older engines that can have a chip fitted, whereas on the newer engines the ECU is re-writeable so needs a remap.
