finally decided to stop being lazy and checked my ECU while checking the ignition (was told it was chipped when i bought the car but never actually checked it..)...
i found this intel chip on it...looks familiar to anyone? or does it actually come stock this way?

prob some old BIOS chip from a pc that the tuner just re wrote to.

It's a 2Mbit flash memory chip

You should def put a sticker on your car that says "Intel inside"

intel just made the chip and tbe tuner installed it and flashed it.

chip is OE... Intel flash chips are very common in bosch ECU's

The trick would be to pull a read off the ECU and see what the file really is.... most ME3.8 ECU's are flashed and not "chipped" however early tuners *96,97, early 98 PN's required a flash chip to be installed as the Bosch name file was for the most part unreleased to the tuning community
