I have had much fun with my ebay chip its no turbo but it helps out on the top end of the power band, and my vtec changeover is much more aggressive sounding

LOL @ EBay chips

Going from a 15.5 to a 15.2 is nothing. The difference in times could have been; temp change, track conditions better/worse, driver error, tire wear difference, etc...

A "chip" that is not made for your car is just going to be dumping more fuel and adding more timing. Sure, you might go a bit faster but your gas mileage and emissions are gonna suck balls.

did u own the car dude no so its kinda hard for u 2 say the chip didnt do anything i know for a fact it did yea it might add timming and dump fuel but if you arnt looking to spend that much money dotn have tunning capabilities then yea its it might be something to buy a chipped ecu sometimes the fuel they dump or the timming they add can help ya or blow ur shit up but if u get a good one it can help u u get a bad one it will hurt u its all a mater of what they put on the chip

Years ago I bought a 'Mugen' chip off Ebay for my D16A6. My seat-o-the-pants meter felt like an increase in power. Eliminated the rev limiter so I was happy. Later when I learned more about tuning, I actually tuned my car on a dyno using some Moates equipment & Turboedit. Turns out the 'Mugen' chip was actually the stock maps from a PR4 ECU. When I compared the stock ECU with the 'Mugen' chip on the dyno, the two mappings made virtually the same hp and torque curve ....... all that really changed was the PR4 map was pig rich (10:1 afr) . No wonder my fuel mileage at the track was so crappy with the 'Mugen' chip. Where I used to run 1 1/2 hrs on a full tank (stock ECU), I was only managing 45 minutes on the 'Mugen'.

Anyways, I used the PR4 maps as the basis for tuning and adjusted the fuel and ignition timing. Managed to increase the hp about 11% over stock but more significantly, increase the torque's peak and duration by about 14%, with 90% of the peak torque available from 3100 to 6500 rpm. Also held the afr to about 13.5:1 across the rpm band. Now I get better power and fuel mileage than the 'Mugen' chip, but it took 8-9 dyno runs and a little bit of reading & an electrical engineering buddy's assistance to accommplish.

My point is that the chip may feel different but you really have to dyno it to have credible comparative results and if you can find some one with a chip burner [ or buy one from Moates.com for about $100 ], you can find out whats really going on inside it, rather than taking someone else's word or guessing. Not all sellers are asshats but some unknowingly spout statements without truly understanding what they are saying.

come on dude.. its a generic chip that isnt even mugen lol.. the difference you felt was your car sucking ass
ebay chips do more harm than good, NO MATTER IF ITS MUGEN, JUN, SPOON,YOUR MOM, OR WHATEVER
all it does is fuck with shit that doesnt need fucked with and adds fuel.. if tuning were that easy then with what ive done to my ecu i should be in the fuckin 9's
