All this talk about poor quality work is depressing. So here are some pictures of good work to compare against. We're not doing anything special here. I just decided to take a picture of an ECU I happened to be working on today. If the shop or friend you're asking to do work on your ECU can't say every one he does looks just like this, be worried. If they actually say they sometimes destroy a chip getting it out, be VERY worried!! If they ask what's a socket, run!!!
Good desoldering job (remember the bad!?)
Good socket install (remember the bad!?)
They should ALL come out like this. No chip should ever be damaged, no pin should be bent, no track should be broken.
