Braid right?


Add more solder to get better heat transfer to the solder in the hole and use flux.

get an actual desoldering station makes life WAY easier.

or just learn how to position your braid correctly.

I also add solder to the two bastard holes, and then hit it w/ the braid again. Works well.

After awhile you will get better at using the braid, and the best way to position it.
I used to cut the chips out of OBD0's w/ a dremel. Now I can get em' out clean w/ just the braid, and no ripped traces.

With the braid I like to insert the pin into the weave then lay my soldering tip on the braid. I also jump around on the chip so I don't over heat one section of the board. Just have some patience, play with it, and you'll get it...

I still use a dremel on pre chip ecu's have gotten a couple obd1 lately with them. Anywho also I like to do maybe 5-6 holes then let the iron rest for a little to get all that heat back works like a charm.


Just take your time ecu chipping is a bitch why everyone who starts doing it stops so bare with it

Not everyone. I make good money doing it, and that's just local. These have been paid for many, many, many times over. Gotta use pro products.

Having previous experience helps too.
