    Yes your car needs the ECU removing and a either a new chip fitting or it will have to be done from the ECU plug, try speaking to these guys here as they may be able to advise you suite, http://www.evo-s.co.uk/

    Doesnt need a chip replacement, a remap can be done on these cars via the round plug under the bonnet.
