    Thread: Identify this chip ? Corrado G60 - Digi I

    1. 09-02-2012 03:14 AM #1
      Hi guys, so i recently purchased a Corrado G60, was running like ****, changed the plugs to the proper expensive bosch-plugs and since i knew the original box was chipped i bought an un-chipped one to get it running as it should. having never worked on a VW-engine like this one i found during removing the digi-box that the vacuum-hose to the ECU was pretty much disintegrated at the intake.

      but i though 'nevermind, i'll change anyway so i get it running as it should'. said and done, changed the ecu and refreshed the hose to a piece that was okay. once warmed up and all the fuel that was in the exhaust was out of the way, it seemed to run like a charm.

      enough jibberjabber, here's the pics, who can identify this beaut?

      i might have found an answer to my mystery, haha.

      this shop sells a chip and a 68 mm compressorwheel, quite popular in sweden due to it's cheap prices.

      That chip in the first picture has an encryption module on it to make reading it difficult. Can't be done with a normal eprom burner because it will not be read properly.

      thanks for your response ! well none the less i'm going to assume that this chip is indeed the KL-Racing one, they claim gains of 35 hp with the 68 mm wheel, that i went out and measured is indeed sitting on my compressor. i should get a boost gauge and an AFR gauge i think

      So if installing a new chip should you remove the chip and the lower deck it sits on I have 2 ecu same #s but one has a chip with a deck and the other has none

      If by what you are calling the lower deck is an encryption module (like in the picture above), then yes. The ECU is reading the data from the encryption module that contains a chip that has the data scrambled so people can't easilly read it. The encryption module unscrambles the data on the chip so the ECU can read it properly. If you are installing a standard non-encrypted chip, then you must remove the encryption module.

      The encrypted chip and module are a unit and must stay together to function.

      What if I installed a non encrypted chip onto the encryption module, would the ecu burn out or the chip, or will both be intact since the encription module was still installed.
