Not possible Jimm love....

The two chips will contain different code and maps so you would need two 'new' eproms for your exact car and ECU... time to leave some negative feedback or get Paypal involved if you used them.

They will refund you straight away if you tell them the goods were only partly supplied/faulty

I used to copy EPROM & EEPROM CHIPS years ago shame i'm not with OLIVETTI anymore. To clear this type of chip you need to remove the label & place it in a Light box similiar to a sunbed then place it in an Eprom copier with the Master chip sitting in its appropriate slot. Only takes 10 Minutes:sarcastic
