Greddy chips? Jeeze, thats a new one. Arent they usualy Mugen/Skunk2/Hondata chips? Heh, anyway in answer to your question, I don't think I would trust running my car on one. Especially if your running an FI setup. Who knows what was programmed on them, if anything. If they were that great do you think they'd be selling them on Ebay for $14? I say stay away man.
Look into using Uberdata or Turbo Edit, or find someone you trust that can make you a basemap to run. IMO it's safer.

Yeah I'm curious too. If it was Xenocron's auction, dude I didn't mean to badmouth it. :P Just kidding, I know you know better. But this Greddy chip sounds new to me. Maybe I thought he meant an eeprom when it's actually something else. Post that link up

It's totally up to you, but I still wouldn't feel safe running anything off of that. I'm curious to know how much of an "aggressive" fuel and ignition curve they've given that chip. I'd rather start with a basemap and work from there. If your looking to do your tuning through the ecu, why use one of those chips? Why not just look into Uberdata?

No problem. I just don't want to see anyone go and blow an engine over a 15 dollar chip. Plus that 9000 RPM rev limit is kind of high for a stock engine If xenocron can't help you out I can take care of it as well, but I'm sure he'll take care of you.

It's funny how they say it's good for 8psi with the Greddy kit, but they mention nothing about injectors. Does that mean you are going to be running 8psi on stock injectors with this miracle chip?
