I have toasted a chip, but never the ECU. A common problem is when you take your car in for service, they may inadverdently reflash your ECU.

Two things to remember:
1) As TXFO said, NEVER install your chip with the key in the ignition. When you insert the key, even in "off', you have energized the ECU. Installing a chip with an energized ECU will fry both the chip and the ECU
2) When handling the chip, make sure you have properly grounded yourself before you touch the chip. Electrostatic discharge will also fry a chip.

Enjoy! I'm sure you'll love it.

to add to what H2Oboy said, avoid touching the contacts of the chip. You may accidently shock the chip if you are carrying a static charge.

I just checked the Diablosport dealer download area and they have a download for DEA6, but not DEA5.

If you can afford to do without your car for a few days, overnight them your PCM, they will read your computer, create a download for it and overnight your PCM back to you. Of course you pay S&H both ways.

I just got in a DEA5 ecu I was going to send to fordchip in preparation for my tranny swap. I'd be willing to send it to anyone who wants it to make a program if it helps out the manual guys. Whoever I send it to would just send it out to fordchip instead of back to me, that's all.
