Default TurboXS Unichip on a 2004?

Hi,

I tought I had a 2003 ecu (swapped car) so I bought a TXS Unichip (old model) for it and now I found out I have a 2004 ecu/engine...

I know there are differences between 2002-03 and 2004 like open loop/closed loop etc...

But did anybody run the Unichip on a 2004? I plugged it in and it idles fine but I didn't risk running/boosting it...

I checked this section and all the others and there was nothing about the unichip anywhere in the section titles, sorry for making the bad choice

Yes my only goal is to blow my engine... that's exactly why I'm asking this question before I put it on and go boost it...

No, it will not work on an 04. You'll get CEL's etc. because the 04 has quiet a few more sensors than the TXS harness has pins for. You can try to run it, just live with teh CEL's....but I'm not sure if the OL/CL delay gets over-ridden by the unichip on step-over. Not worth the risk for $100 (02-03 ECU price) IMHO.

You'll have to buy an 02-03 ECU if you want to use the chip (not a bad idea anyway!)

Pretty sure we already answered this for you in a previous thread...
