It happened to me too. They're good deals, but you need to need to check out the application (with the original mfg) before you buy.

As some of you might have read , i got a chip from a guy on ebay.At first the car ran great BUT..the next day i get in the car and the check engine light came on about 5 minutes into my drive. Only comes on when i hit the gas.The idle also is off a little.(yes i used high octane i always do).I just ordered the conforti chip so as that old saying goes...."you get what you pay for!!"
beware of ebay chips.
