Performance Mod Chips
Does any one know what the deal with those wicked cheap mod chips you see on Ebay (zero gravity, Japenese development...) Do they work, are they safe? and has any one installed one?

even more dont trust ebay too much thumbsdown, sometimes if your lucky you can get the right stuff on ebay for a good price smile, but there's those times where you get ripped off angry...

to buy on EBay, you have to know the background of the item that you are looking for... for example,if you are looking for strut bars, you will find cheap ones and the well known ones like APR, GReddy, Tanbe, Rear TRD, etc for a bit more..! but since most amature don't know their parts, they buy the cheap ones and all they do is waste money... So inorder to buy on Ebay, you have to have to know the item that you are looking for...

I don't know if this makes sense... tongue

a chip is something that should be burnt specifically to your car after dyno tuning/tweaking. There are many piggyback systems on the market that allow you to advance/retard timing and allow you to adjust the fuel delivery.

On my car I use the apexi safc to control fuel and use MSD DIS and boost retard on my Turbo application. My car had 82 dyno runs before tuning was completed but my car was also the first that was done with this Turbo kit.

Many tuners can put your car on the dyno and get a baseline and see where the power is to be made and they'll go from there flashing the chip or tuning with a piggyback until optimum Performance is met.

i'm guessing you didn't do this on a celica, s-afc gets over ridden by stock ecu, if you must use a piggy back theres the split second piggy back that Stafford fabrications uses on his Turbo set ups, and the emanage has been proven by MWR to work on a Turbo gt celica.
