WHAT???? Do you mean "Engine"? As in the the thing that makes your car move????
Unless it is an actual chip that he is using to tap onto your ECU, he is full of it. For $140, I highly doubt that he would install a chip.
To clear the "Check Engine Light" (CEL), all you need to do it disconnect the negative terminal of your battery. It is highly recommend that you disconnect it before installing the CAI
Now, I can't stop laughing again. Here I am thinking there is a new chip out that I don't know about.
FYI, there are devices out there that will tap our ECU. S-AFC and Venom 400 both retails about $300. There are also some ECU piggybacks out there too.
Trust me, you don't need any "chip" for your CAI
. I have the Injen CAI
for almost two years. No problem at all. And most of the people I know have Injen CAI
, and none of them have "ingen chip". Hahahahahahhaha...I'm sorry, I had to do it.
Take it to another shop. It should only cost around $30 to $40 bucks. Good luck.
