Re: Installing Autotech chip (ButchHusky)

Golden rule: NOTCH to NOTCH.
notch on chip
notch on board.
don't put it in backwards, or the chip will fry. I have one right here a customer did, he was lucky the ecu didn't fry. They generally do. That rule is the rule for all electronics. Take your time, and dont break the original chip. If the chip is bad, you might need to go back. Use a flat head and pry each side a little at a time up till the chip comes out.
Good luck.
