Alright mad scientists i need some input, im getting my car chipped in a week or so and sending my ecu away, i might have a possible ecu from a dealer to borrow so i can still drive my car for the 2-3 days, my current ecu is AWP, i almost sure the other one is not a AWP, will it work with my car and will i get locked out from my key and the anti theft when the key sends "message" to ecu?????

Re: ECU code question (1SickGTI)

well AWP is the engine code not ecu code but seeing as how your car is an 03' you most likely have an LP ecu.if they have a compatible ecu for you someone will need to re-adapt the ecu ecu to your car otherwise it wont start,your friendly immobilizer in action.this will only need to be done to new ecu's that the car has not seen before so when you get your ecu back just toss it in and your good to go.
