hello people: I do have a different one other than stock. I did not replace it so how to do it? I know it's in the ECU on the right side interior kick panel but are there precautions in doing it? Is there static electricity to worry about?
Next to the battery there's an Orange wire. Un-plug it while you do the swap. Yes, passenger side kick panel. There's a push-in plug thingy to remove then the whole panel and ECM comes out. Pull down gently as it slides in place.
No need to remove, just flip it over and the small cover on the back has a couple screws. You'll see the chip. It's a good idea to touch something for the static.
hello: My car is a turbo V6 and I should of realized that a Buick is not the only ECM controlled G-body. Sorry men. I do have a 5.6 chip from turbo tweak. I want to go to a 180 stat but TT recommends a 160. I heard you should get the chip reprogrammed for the 180 so I was going to have to send the chip to TT to do that. That's why the chip removal question. Now TT says that I do not have to reprogram but the fans will be on more and it will be more sensitive to knock. I'm going to get a 180 and leave the chip as is for now. This spring I still might reprogram.
