I'd be extra hesitant to use an eBay chip in my car.

Plus you can delete EWS by snipping the #7 green wire. It takes seconds and is free.

Yeah, the only thing is that the risk is huge with this kind of part. If it causes your engine to run poorly, you can start frying things, burning valves, etc. No bueno.

The chip you posted in the link is an EWS delete chip.

Cutting the green wire will do the same thing the chip will do but for free.

I don't get why that's so hard to understand? :/
