    Yeah, you pretty much did exactly what you should have on the block. You should get a P28 and have it socketed/chipped so you can have it tuned. Don't just go buy an Ebay chip or something like that, but get a real engine management setup such as Crome and have it tuned on a dyno. If you have a wideband and know somebody that can tune well you also could street tune it, but a dyno would be better.

    Basically it means taking a stock P28 ECU, and soldering a socket in place of the soldered in chip. It allows you to install different chips by simply plugging them into the socket instead of soldering them into the circuit board. Then you can have a tuner program a chip for you and install it into the ECU.

    The part outlined in red is the socket where you would plug the chip into.
