Default fried ecu if chip is in backwards.

i turboed my car and had some problems with the turbo, then i unturboed my car and put the stock chip in backwards, i tried to crank it a few times, trying to diagnoss the problem. so i took the head off (due to other reasons) other thread in the main forum.

my question: well the head is back on and it still wont start, can the chip being in backwards fry the ecu?

Yeah this doesn't sound like an ecu problem. Sounds like a mechanical problem. I put my ecu chip in backwards and all I did was cook the chip. Another try the correct way fixed the problem.
How's the timing on your engine?
