How long is the average wait time for a TW chip?

I ordered my chip 15 days ago. Checked the website and still says processing. Just wondering if this is normal? Can't wait for it to get here.

I just ordered mine about a month or so ago. It took about a week to process. and then 3 n a half weeks, almost 4 to get it. But trust me. The wait is TOTALLY worth it lol. Its night and day when you put the chip in.

When the chip is ready it'll say completed in the order status. But then it takes like, for me it took about 3 weeks or so to ship. But once it's done and ready to be shipped it will say completed. It wont say shipped, just completed.

Took me about 3 or so weeks but Tony was out of town. What I have recently noticed and haven't tried before but my "Street" tune is jacked up shift points are all kinds of messed up. Tony has a "helper" and I'm not sure if the helper accidentally entered a wrong value or not but I plan to contact him. :-(

remember times will be varying for a bit with Tony, especially the next few weeks, due to personal issues with the family. Be patient, its worth the wait.
