Stay away from E-Bay chips, trust me.

As I develop chips, my feedback on this will obviously look biased.

I have analysed on Ebay chip for an ETA and it appears to be a clone of an Autothority chip, but may also have some changes.
I can see the Autothority copyright in the data of this chip. The odd thing is that the timing is advanced an unsafe amount. That's why I suspect someone used the Autothoritu as a start and then gave the timing a big whack. I called Autothority last week and they said they no about the eBay chips, and that someone with one has burned a hole in 2 pistons.

So use at your own risk. I am surprised that people will buy a $40 chip to install in a car with the $500 air dam and expen$ive wheels/tires instead of buying something that is known to work well.

Someone in Calgary is running my ETA chip after removing his eBay special and he says there is a big difference.

I've sold about 20 ETA chips in the last 8 years and everyone is very happy with it.
