Gotta say, I like it!! :thumb:
That is why they make DIP insertion tools.Okay, so the chip was harder to put in than expected. The prongs on the chip were spread out further than the holes on the board. Has anyone else had trouble with these and, after it was installed, did anyone else experience any difficulties?
If you got each pin into the socket and didn't touch the pins with your fingers, you should be fine.I got the pins inserted but I am just concerned about putting the tank back on and then finding out the chip is a bust. I will be saying a small prayer before firing it back up.
I am quite sure Kirk is not an EE or electronics tech. He demonstrated a very bad practice. If you are in low humidity conditions and have any static on you from walking across carpet, sliding out of a cloth car seat, removing a jacket, etc., you can easily kill an IC by discharging into its leads.What do you mean dont touch the pins? Looks like Kirk does in the video
I'm certainly not the expert, but I'm assuming that the idle speed is controlled by the Motronic ECU (normally & reverse high idle). Your LT is a 2001? Were you able to use the new chip in the existing ECU, or did you have to use a different one?The only thing I've noticed is when I use reverse, the engine does not rev up. also sometimes the idle speed is a little low.
By the way what controls idle speed?
