Change on the fly chips, dirt problems?
I have been reading up on the many chips available for our trucks. The shift on the fly/custom tuned chips from TS, PHP, TW, etc seem like the best way to go as far as performance is concerned. However, reading up on the installation of these chips has left me with a question.
How safe are these chips for offroading? By this I mean that has anyone run into problems with getting water or dirt into the ECM where the chip plugs in? I realize that you can duct tape the chip as best as possible, but is this really very impervious to mud and water if the truck goes offroad alot? Seems to me that it is just asking for the ECM to get damaged.
Just my thoughts but has anyone had some real world experience with this? I dont like the thought of just some duct tape protecting my trucks electronics when getting dirty. Thanks and any input is appreciated.
