Can you swap the ECU from one car to another??

Just as it says, can you swap ECU from one to another?/ I have a 05 ZX4 thats getting rebuilt and I wont be using the harness, ECU, BCM, etc, so what do I do with it, sell it?

need an answer first??

I have the tuner as well as five custom tunes from FS and a drag tune that was built by FS and adjusted by 1turbofocus at FF09, most of you saw the car run. So can I just sell it to another focus owner so they can swap it out and use my tunes/tuner??

Yes you can sell the ECU to another person IF they have the same ECU code as you do in there Foci now

You can sell the tuner/xcal to anyone as long as you restore the origional back up into your Foci before you take the ECU out otherwise it is locked and worthless , it cost 150.00 to unlock it through SCT
