Install a performance chip directly into the dashboard. Open up the glove compartment and unscrew the screws that hold the panel in place. You will now have access to the ECU box. Replace the stock chip with the upgrade by unclipping one and then fastening the other in its place.
How and where are microchips placed? Microchips are implanted just under the skin, usually right between the shoulder blades. This is done with a large-bore needle and doesn't require anesthesia. Each microchip contains a registration number and the phone number of the registry for the particular brand of chip.

How to get your pet microchipped. First, make an appointment with Petco's veterinary services. They'll scan your pet and, if they find a microchip, they'll give you your pet's ID number and the name of microchip registry. It will then be up to you to call the registry and provide updated contact information.
The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, and is also known as a PIT (passive integrated transponder) tag. Standard pet microchips are typically 11–13 mm long (approximately 1⁄2 inch) and 2 mm in diameter.
Call a local veterinarian's office or the Humane Society. Ask the veterinarian's office or Humane Society if it is able to check for a microchip on a stray dog. Take the dog to the office and ask the employees to check for a microchip.
A microchipped pet without a tag means that only a vet or humane society with a scanner is likely to be able to find you, and only if they follow through and scan the pet. For me, that means it is essential to combine the microchip with a good dog tag.
The Performance Chip MUST STAY plugged into the OBD2 port to operate.
The needle containing the microchip is loaded into the application gun or syringe, and your dog is positioned for the injection. For dogs, the standard site for microchip placement is in the subcutaneous tissue along the dorsal midline (the spine) between the dog's shoulder blades.
Peripheral indwelling IV catheters are most commonly placed in the cephalic vein in dogs and cats. In the hind limb, they are most commonly placed in the lateral saphenous vein. Other veins used often for catheterisation include the accessory cephalic, and medial saphenous.
