Chips are used in forced induction motors (turbos/superchargers) to reprogram fuel maps and force more air in faster. They don't do much for normally aspirated motors. Toyota has pretty much optimized everything already.

Since the manufactures have to make all engines conform to EPA standards(lean settings...jetted/injected) then I presume ther is no way to make your injected engine run,more on the rich side....to help decrease operational temps?.You would probably have to install an entirely different/reconfigured ECU?.

i was kinda thinking that too. for a lot of newer cars ecu chips dont really work. you usually have to get the whole ecu, i have seen a few things that supposedly work tho, and i may give something a try because i want any power i can get, because obviously that 4 banger dont have a whole lot.
