For #1, how are you managing e85 gas that is E50?

For #2, have you had any issues with the system automatically adjusting for varying ethanol content?

For either, is the un-installation truly phantom? (where the dealer has no way of finding out that this was installed

Anyone not happy with the unichip or discover issues?

Guy didn't follow up well on that situation. Someplace there is a thread with him cursing the thing out.
Stay away from them. They are more scam than anything.

Is there an alternative other than unichip that works well?

Anything that doesn't modify the settings directly on the ecu? Looking for a piggy back.

I've got one like new that I'll let you have for $150 plus shipping. I tried to sell it on here back in 2016, but the buyer backed out. I just kept it in the box and forgot about it since then.

See here for details: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url...1&share_type=t

I can get new pics if you want them.

Any particular reason why? There's a reason these piggy-back style systems aren't popular.

If your concerned re warantee or something just buy another ecu, they are likd $150 usa i have 3 , swap in replacement ecu and tune that. Then just swap back in your original if needed

Way better to tune with software than a piggyback

That's genius!

What about mileage? Is that not saved on the ecu?

Is there a procedure for swapping a new one in? (i.e. you have to go to the dealership, you have to reset something on the car for it to accept the new ecu, anyone have a procedure for doing this)

It sounds really easy and really too good to be true. Are you sure?
