well older cars its just plug and play. should not damage anything. worse case if its wrong ecu the chipped ecu will cause your car to have missfires an what not but your smart enough to turn it off befor any damage is done


Unplug your ECU when the car is running. This will keep the ECU in an open format, and not locked. Its just a straight swap, but remember to turn the ignition off before you insert the new one (not that the car will run for much longer after you've removed the ECU when its running) :)
