Default prices on chipped ecu's and other questions

what should i expect to pay for a chipped p28? i was gona get one from the junkyard but that seems to be the one they don't have at any yards by me.. wonder why...

anyways, i have people trying to sell me un-chipped ones for upwards of 160-180 which seems crazy cause i've gotten ecus at the junkyard for $30 before but i guess p28's get snatched up huh

i've found chipped ones for around 125-150 - good price? or u guys no where to get em cheaper?

also i dont know alot about tunning yet but how do you interface with the ecu for tunning? data logging cable? then u need a burner to actually change the file on the chip? like i said i dont know much

for a p28.....i've seen the price range from $100-$120 (because of the demand) so like you said, id keep searchin the junkyards. I've also heard you can use a po6 (and just do a v-tec conversion). and for the tuning you can download crome (it's free) and burn a basemap, and then you can get a cable (nokia phone cord) for data logging. you can find out alot of info about this from xenocron (hmt member) check out his site www.-------------

unless you have soldered before I recommend getting one already chipped.

I can get them from the junkyard at $50-75.

Stealthmode P28s are $140 shipped, Xenocron has his at $165. They are essentially the same price though. The Xenocron ones come with a basemap. That is what you are paying the $25 for.

That is what you will pay though, not much of a way around it, unless you find one second hand. Just like anything else.

Not anymore...I have to make at least 10-15 phone calls before I find someone dumb enough to let them go for that much. And when they do...they only have 1 or 2 available so shipping chews it up. I'm looking into JDM ECUs in the 100-200 qty for cheaper...but there is a bunch of bullshit and risk when it comes to that too.

I only price them at $165 because I cant find them for cheaper and people still keep buying me out on a weekly basis

BTW...this is Chris. I'm locked out of my xenocron name at the moment
