   Chips do nothing for performance but toleration on the WR engine.  The

Not quite true...

   ECU has no control over either boost or fuel - it only controls timing
   and thus has to tolerate whatever has been done mechanically to the

At least in _my_ mods (can't speak for what abt, IA, Tap, etc. do), I
modify the timing to match the boost, and bump what little extra fuel
is available via ECU control on WOT/high boost.

But yes, both boost and primary fuel delivery are mechanically
controlled, and on early ECUs (MAC-02) even the timing is static (in
the sense there is no knock-detection/ timing-retard capability).
