Tips For Installing Chips

So I was thinking lets put together a thread of tips to help those in stall their chips. I know that there are write ups but any tips you guys have we can put here to help people out.

Example:

When I put the PHP in my truck and was cleaning the ecm i used the scotch brite then i used a tooth pick to scrape the rest of the silicone off. And it helped a ton after 2 installs using scotch brite and it not working lol

I ended up using my fingernail and a toothpick to get the silicon off.

Go ahead and cut the box that holds the PCM so if you have to get it out you dont have to take the whole thing out.

well on the 94 thru 98 you can go thru the left front tire well...instead of taking off the e brake and all,i just lowered the wheel well gaurd and pushed down on that card board feeling stuff and pulled the pcm.i then cleaned and did all the proper stuff to install,but i added one thing extra for protection..tony send's his chip's to you in a lil plastic bag,i made a slit in the lil plastic bag and ran the wire thru it,placing the lil plastic bag over the installed chip,i then taped the lil plastic bag with black electrical to the pcm,this way no dust or moisture can enter the pcm. all you should see when your looking at the pcm is the wire running out the back.
