I have a "Superchipped" RS2 ECU on my desk that if you knew what it 
contains, you'd be pulling your hairs! The fuel chip contains only rubbish 
(the car runs worse than stock with this supershits ECU) and the boost chip 
is stock. BTST (been there seen that) on loads of other S2s and S4s 
initially superchipped, but possibly the US S4 chips aren't the same????
