I think it will fit, but you will still need to program it...

The dealers can what is called flash the ecm to reset original settings, but you need to get your vehicle there....

Is there any way that it can be flashed by mechanic if follow some type of manual or series of set numbers or does it HAVE TO BE DONE BY DEALER? Also...what does" oem" stand for in regards to ECM?

Dealer is who I know who does this. they have all the original specs. The car may run, I don't know for sure. OEM= original equipment manufacture.

Really cant go wrong, $40 is a good price, considering I spent $400 on a performance chip for my truck computer...

Yikes.that was about how much prices were on other avenues of acquiring ($299 mostly) part coming from Canada Just chkd progress. @ JFKA on 26. Hopefully works well. Listing said 100% working order. Thanks again
