did I understand you correctly that you have actually bought the "X" part on Ebay?

Reason I ask is that Ebay GSP shipping still seems to be functioning, perhaps a little slower than usual, and also I just received a Deutschepost/DHL item from Ebay Germany today. I don't have any experiences with Ebay out of USA in the last couple of weeks though

Sorry no, still on my original ecu. I know this sounds weird, but can you load a auto tune onto a chip?

Thanks for the reply's chaps. Im hoping to see the guy that did the job today. He is coming to my place to see if we can get it going. The chips came with the car and weren't fitted so i figured hey why not! I had him do my 850 T5 volvo first to check his work haha and that turned out fine. Seems to know a soldering iron from a blow torch.
Have tried to attach a pic of the chips,but the 'upload folder if full' Ill update you all with todays outcome if any.

Did your guy fit the socket(s) in the pics?

yes.

The work does not in all honesty look terribly flash. Did he do it all by hand with a conventional soldering iron?

I really don't know to be honest.

What is preventing you from reinstalling the original chips. now that sockets are fitted; did he destroy them when removing?  Sorry if I missed something here

Obviously a bad time for shipping due to the current virus but I think you have to cut your losses and source a known good ECU from a reputable seller, ie quattroforum rather than ebay.

Bad time for your vehicle to go down though. You may be lucky to get it going by the end of the year unless you can source an ECU locally.

Another way maybe to source some known good chips and try them. Maybe you can take your ECU to someone locally to swap chips?
