    The 98 pcm's are considerably different and some sensors are 98 specific.
    Copied from HpTuners site:
    - binaries are not segmented
    - flashing routine is slightly different
    - pinouts are different
    - checksum routines are different
    - more calibrations to manage (due to non segemnted binaries)
    - code structure is different
