Question 96 SVT Cobra Tuner Chip ECM questions ?

My new to me 96 SVT Cobra 39K Miles runs great 90% of the time and erratic enough to cause me worry and needs to be fixed. It will stall from idle after about 5 minutes running. And tonight after about an 80 mile ride it started sputtering and missing. All gauges were 100% normal. When I came to an intersection the Revs would run up to 2000 on their own in neutral. I received some answers from the net that it could be the tuner chip going flakey. That sometimes the contacts corrode. Or it could be the ECM. So Where do I find the Chip?
The previous owner said it was a "Super Chip" can anyone tell me the MFG of that?

Mods include no cats, Flowmaster mufflers, new H pipe and K&N cold air kit. If I pull the chip will car revert to factory tune? Will it run with these mods? If I need an ECM can I buy a refurb? If I buy refurb or used must it be a 96 Cobra ECM? My first thought is to pull the chip, clean the contacts, and re-seat it.

I guess that covers it. I'm not familiar with chips. I'm an old school Holley Double Pump guy. Thanks, Spiney-Dave
