Well, chipping is just an expression. ECU don't use chips anymore, they have to be reprogrammed. So sure yours can be reprogrammed. Have fun driving it with the extra power. But make sure you start saving money for the new transmission you'll need in about six months. The chipping companies don't tell you about that. The transmission shops love guys like you.

It won't make enough extra power to damage your transmission that's funny.. Perhaps if you installed a turbo and intercooler but not just from a ECU reflash . Lol .. I've been happy with the flashpaq tuner I purchased for my truck,, I was able to adjust the speedo to the 36 inch tires and I do notice a performance gain.. So I would recommend this same tuner.. Good luck
