I picked up an 850 and the guy said it has a chip.

It has an ipd exhaust some other components and an ipd emblem on the box the ecu and tcu are in so I am guessing it is an ipd but there is no indication on the actual ecu.

Is there a way to open the ecu and verify anything or is that a bad idea?

If its software flashed theres no physical change to the ecu. Does it smoke the tires and slam you into your seat when you drive it? If so, it has been tuned.

No way to tell by looking at the ecu. A boost gauge would probably tell you however.

Could also give IPD a call. They may very well keep a directory of cars they have sold modified ECUs to.
