    Wondering, since it seems to be a good way to go to get a custom chip just right. I'm always trying to learn about EFI and get everything I can out of my motor, just got a scanner and found at part throttle I am lean due to the fuel map on the chip. Guy off the thirdgen board recommended I get into it, cost about $250 total for the hardware and software. So has anyone burned their own?

    I haven't, but there is some really good info about custom programming of TPI systems on the <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/ecmguy.geo/index.html>ECM Guy</a> web site that you may want to check out.

    I found it from the community.webshots.com/user/robbrj

    BlazinOR, I have been looking at it this procedure as well. Haven't really made a decision about it, but I know Andy (Realsquash) has done it on his BBC and can probably be some good help. Here is a link to his page with some info and his email. http://coloradok5.com/gallery/captcrunch

    I do it as a living but for pc's and telephone systems. It is real easy if you got a pc.Problem for you will be finding the programming. You can get a eeprom from say Radio Shack, you plug it in the burner then download the file to it. The file is the programmimgfor the ECM. Now if you find someone who has a good chip, you can drop it in the burner and copy it to the pc. The then plug in the new one and download the file to it. Then put it in the car...

    I think that the sites I posted above have links to sites with various versions of the necessary software to program the chips, FWIW.[​IMG]

    Yep, lots of helpful guys out there with the actual programming/parameters. Not to mention one guy from out in the NW here that said if I got the software/hardware he would help me burn one for my truck.
