superchips chip? e99 xle4 pcm

hey guys, so i got around to pulling my ecu to see if it was original or whats been done and to verify the code on it. my truck is an e99 f350. the previous owner bought it in a lifted/modded state, and it runs pretty good with what seems like an ok amount of power. barely a haze out the pipe at full throttle so i knew it didnt have some major tuning done to it. anyways upon removal of the ecu (its an xle4 code...) i found this thing plugged in the port?





they also scrubbed the poop out of the contacts on the board too.... not that im overly concerned as im going to switch out for a l99 pcm pretty quick too.





anyone got any idea what this "chip" would be called? or possibly what they are worth? thanks

Just update to a pmt 1 or 2 and get some custom tunes. I'm glad I did. What a difference. I swapped 5/6 yrs ago and have been very happy.

When you get a used pcm send it to your tuner of choice and have them flash it to make sure there's no residuals left from a previous tuner.

Old old dinosaur super chips. Not worth anything anymore as no one is tuning them anymore.

Re: superchips chip? e99 xle4 pcm

yah a pmt is on my search list, every time i see one up its already sold, and the local truck recyclers just sold the last one. if anyone knows of one for around 100$ feel free to pass me some info. im pretty sure this truck was built right off the lot, everything in it that was aftermarket was all 1999 era stuff. that chip has probably been there since 99-2000, 13 years and 270k miles. so those were actually individually tuned then? not just a store bought generic tune?

It's 1 generic tune. But php and I think gear head used to put 1 custom tune on them for $50 but they stopped it.

php and Wildman would be the ones I would ask.
any decent tuner should be able to add a new chip to the xle..it is just not as friendly.
