If you have to ask then you probably need to get someone else to instal the chip. The original memory chip must be desoldered and removed and then the socket soldered into the PCB, the new chip can then be installed in the socket. If you're not competent at this type of work then its very easy to damage the ECU. The components in the ECU are also vulnerable to static electricity so this should be done on a static controlled workbench.

I am very good at soldering and working on static as i do have a static workbench and tons of bags the only problem is i am unable to locate the original chip... i already took out ecu and took it apart and am unsure of where the chip is... Any reference help? i really cannot locate it or the performance chip is larger than the stock one, Any help please?
