They don't use chips these days. They reprogram the ECU - Engine Control Unit.

craigsfocus If they are still looking for people around May 2013 for a N/A Focus, I will be relatively close to Orlando and I will be able to give up my car for 2 weeks. I'll just drive my wife's Infiniti while they have it.

_RED_ Dont know if it will do anything since they have already pulled tune a few times.
