Yes there is a chip for the super ETA its the same as the ETA silly
yes racing seats are about 70 lbs lighter such as recaro, corbeau, TenzoR, Bride

Umm, on the compression - no, you're wrong. If you put the I head on an Eta bottom with with NORMAL Eta pistons, that's the compression you'll get. But, the Super Eta pistons are domed like the I pistons. The compression of an I head on an Eta bottom end with an Eta crank and Super Eta pistons is somewhere around 8:5.1
Also, regarding the chip. I personally wouldn't trust this "powerchip" place. I just looked - HOLY SHIT! $440 fucking dollars?!?! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING. For that increase, it is NOT worth it. For that much, you can take the I top end and get a much better outcome. That, and a higher redline. The Super Eta is the PERFECT base for a stroker. Make use of it. Don't get that chip, WAY overpriced.
I'm just sharing my suggestions. You can go any route you see fit. Either way, teh car should be pretty cool.
