      So I'm going to have to replace my ecu due to the throttle portion being fried by my o2 sensor wiring, so I just wanted to make sure for easy of ...well everything...if pull an ecu and gauge cluster from the same vehicle (and let's assume they are the same part numbers as my gauge cluster and ecu) will I be able to drive my car (only key I have is a valet so no worries on my keys not working to pop open my trunk and doors).

      You'll have to recode the immo stuff I think.

      If you just swap ecu I think it will start but won't run. (immo shuts it off after a couple seconds).
