    Simple question:

    What reprogrammable chip do I buy for my series one VN? I want to try a few different configurations on it. I've got TunerPro, and I'm thinking I'm going to buy sockets/cables to do it real-time.

    AT29C256 if youre lucky enough to find one, but i think the 27SF512 is a reusable chip too?

    So what's the deal with a 512k chip where the actual binary I'm using is only 32k?

    Does anyone have an xdf file for a series one VN they can upload? I might mess around with my own tunings for a while.

    Hi greenfoam did you ever make a guide about making a performance chip as stated above? If so can you point me in the right direction as I'm new to tuning with the computer as opposed to carbs & dizzy.

    FOAM_RACING_VNS1_bolt_ons_256k was a very early incarnation probably not the best tune to use it works but the man himself said it was made back in the day when we were all learning.it should run though maybe your memcal socketing job is not done properly makes the fans come on and the check engine light ide suggest re heating every pin again then test each one with a multimeter set on ohms

    if you are using a 27c256 youll need to stack the ARBP so there is 2 tunes on one chip .click on bin stacker/splitter in tunerpro select stack chip size 32 bin size 16 block size 16 load the ARBP twice down the bottom select a new name in the other box where its gonna save and click stack then burn it to the chip.everyone loves free memcals ill take them if you are going to throw them out
