You are replacing the only EPROM chip on the two circuit boards. If you're installing your own chip it's very helpful to have previous electronics servicing experience. The chip will not come out until you have cleanly remove all the solder from the pins. The biggest mistake people make is to start prying on the chip when it's not ready to come out, and the copper traces rip themselves free from the board. The solder has better adhesion to the pins of the chip than the copper traces have to the circuit board.
BTW, I'm also working on an ECU chip installation FAQ so detailed instructions and pictures are coming soon.

The chip you want to replace is brown in color usually also. It should have a similar label to the chip you are putting in also. I didnt take any pics and cant remember the eeprom model but the numbers permanently inked on the chip should match closely. The chip goes in the same way as the one that was in there. Look for the notch on one end of the IC and make sure the other goes in exactly the same way. A chip socket is also a good idea so you never have to solder/desolder it again. They usually cost .25 and its a good investment. If you solder something a few times it will eventually break down the traces and pads on the printed circuit board.
