well, im looking to buy a used chip, but where the hell would i get it installed, i called the local APR dealers and they said they won't do the install (obviously not making enough money on it). so for those who have purchased USED chips. How did you get them installed?

my buddy dualaudi got his apr chip soldered at a reputable electronics place for about $40. he says it works great! Try locally for a performance shop that does that stuff or worst case scenario a electronics place that'll do it for you.

I have already emailed GIAC about this recently. They are going to call around to local dealers and find one that will install the chip for me. At least that's what I understand from the email.

I also have found a local performace shop that is willing to do it for $50 but they're not GIAC dealer.

that's funny cause APR won't do it for me, but a local unitronic's dealer that's a friend of mine is gonna do it for 50 bucks also.

yep, its all up to the independent dealers....

the install is the same whether its an apr or giac chip...
