Hi there,

Anyone know where I can buy Tom's Rally chip? The web site http://www.occracing.com/ doesn't seem to be working.

Many thanks.

You could try and get in contact with Vela on the board. Maybe he can help you out.

Thanks.

I got in touch with Adam via email (bigbigbear@shaw.ca). OCC Racing's current web site is http://members.shaw.ca/bigbearzuke/ts/index.htm

Does anyone here actually remember "Tom"?....That was a loooong time ago that he, and his white Gti used to haunt this board....he even had that car full of Calmini Swift parts (now THAT is old!)

I believe he was a computer tech (?) and was making copies of the chip himself. he must have bought the chip from somewhere originally, and I think it is ironic the "legendary" status of the "Tom's chip"...

All in all, a great guy, who has done A LOT for the community by providing us all with this resource. I doubt he even knows about his cult status, but I am sure he would smile....

BTW: I bet most of the chips you see now are second, or third (or more) generation copies of the original....copying always leads to errors!

tc2468 (Tom) still pops on the board every now and again but I don't think he's posted in a long time. IIRC he sold the Swift a year or two ago.

Hi, I have relative stock engine now, I'm looking for some chip.
now I have sport air filter and in future I will mount better cams..

Tom's chip seems to be good one, but can I run it with 95 octane fuel, or I must use 98/100 octane fuel ?

Thx
BonfireCZ

You can get 100 octane at the pump?

*jealous*

I'm pretty sure that 91 octane is the "minimum" octane level you want to run with a chip in there.
With 95 octane you should be juuuust fine. Unless the octane system is different in the Czech Republic from here in North America.

adam willems actually bought the technology and license from tom and sells the eproms from OCC Racing.

the code is not corrupted. he actually owns the original code and each chip he burns is a 1st generation copy of it. he has fought courageously in the past to keep pirates from selling cloned chips on ebay. if you don't buy the eprom directly from him, as stated, the cloned copy may be corrupt.

:) yes, in europe is different octane calculations, lowend fuel is 91 for old cars, normal is 95 octane, and we can buy 98 octane or 100 octane fuel, but it is for newest cars or newest ECU with detonation sensor

in my car specs is recommended 95octane fuel

Where can you buy the chips now? I emailed big bear but the reply came back it's 'not him.' (!)

occracing.com website is up but the email goes nowhere.

But how can one buy if he doesn't respond to emails?
Vela also moved away from the swift. I don't know if he still visits the board. His chip IIRC has the same rally program.
But there's a better chip now==> SANDROS CHIP. GET THAT.

Theres at least one member here who has had nothing but problems with his Sandro chip...still waiting to hear if it ever gets resolved.

I've sold a few, and referred at least a half dozen customers to Sandro for his chip, with no problems.
My Nephew runs one in his GT without any issues.

I'm sure theres been a few dozen out there with 0 issue...but there is one that I know of and Sandro has done nothing to rectify the problem...he's too busy with life apparently...

Does everyone that uses these 'toms chip' have the 'blurp' noise from the exhaust?

Which problem are you referring to that i have rectify??? please update me because i don't remember having any problems with my chips? If your referring to the chip that i sent to Almotorswift, he thought i sold him a fake chip, basically another Tom's chip but i would never do that. The chip he received is the same 210/340 chip that i have sent to everyone else...I hope he still doesn't think that...

Yes it would be the chip that doesn't make its claimed redline yet stops exactly where the Tom's chip did. I don't have every detail because it happened long ago but he did post it in the feedback section a couple of months ago but never got a response or a chip that redlined at the claimed RPM. I believe he even posted a video of it. I suppose he may think that you sent him a fake chip since he has said you have not managed to send him one that does what you claim.

All the chips i have sold have the same cutoff, around 8600 rpm. When my tuner did the dyno tuning his dyno program was showing that the car was actually at around 8800 rpm when the chip would hit the limiter. this is why I was saying that the chip's limiter is around 8800 rpm. Even in my car the limiter would hit around 8600 rpm. I've always said to him that if he doesn't believe me he can buy a cheap chip reader and look at the programs of both the toms chip and mine. As for a response on the board, I've sent pm's back and forth with him to try and reassure him that what he got is the dyno tuned chip that was in my car. This is why i didn't do anything to rectify the "problem" because there was none. i hope this settles your concerns about my product/s.

That was the concern of Dan's. If you guys have worked it out then great. When he was originaly trying to get somewhere with it he came up with nothing. Don't forget I posted that back in August. Regardless..you did say it was a 9000RPM limit in your original post and now its limiting 400RPMs shy. Will it make a huge difference? Probably not. Did the buyer expect a 9000RPM cutoff like what he was told? Yes.
