    Can i swap pcms from a 00 to my 99 ?

    Buy a p1sc kit and was wondering if i could swap pcms . I dont think i can because i thought the vins were into each one . But just wondering , then both of us can drive our cars instead of towing them to tuning shops .

    as long as the cars have the same options (ABS, TC, etc etc) he'd be fine with out a tune... the vins don't matter... infact my tune on my car used the vin from a 2004 corvette...
