Alright I've got the computer out, and the connectors cleaned, now I have a really stupid question. With the computer oriented normally, does the chip go in with the devil horns over top of the EEC board or do you flip the chip over and slide it in under the EEC board to get the proper connection?????????
Help its in the driveway waiting.

If I remember correctly, it goes over the top of the connector.

Good luck...

I thought it only really fit in well in one direction.

Well I was just curious because if you slide it under the board you can read the www.diablo.com thing, so it might have made sense to put it in that way.

Would be kind of funny if everyone had them upside down and the only performance improvements were in their minds.

it will only fit with the chip on top. If somehow you managed to make it fit upside down, the car wouldn't start. I've tried several different EEC's here, and if you try to put it in upside down, there isn't enough clearance.
