I am selling my car,and would like to sell the Revo if I can. My understanding is that I need the same car in the same year, and we can swap the ecu's with the use of the vag com...??? Or is it any car with the same engine code?
I have a vag-com, and am in houston, and would need to do this asap as I am moving. Can someone give me the low-down so I know what all is involved before I list a for sale ad?
its a 2003 GTI. Thanks in advance for your info/help!

You have to switch ECU's with someone that has the same ecu code as yours.

how do I determine this? Do all 2003 GTI's have the same ecu code?

Only if they also have the same trans. Like if you have a manual you need to swap with another manual.

so I need to find a buyer with a 2003 gti AND a manual? Will a 2003 manual jetta work, or a 2002? Basially HOW specific do I have to be?

Yeah, a 2002 or 2003 GTI or Jetta will work if they have the same trans as you.

Quit feeding the guy BS!
You need to either remove your ECU and look at the code on it or use the VAG-COM to read the controller code. For example, your code may be 06A906032LP and someone else may have 06A906032HS. Both are for AWP 5-speed engines, but they are not interchangable. You need to swap with someone with the same code.

And don't forget, you will need an SKC for each ECM to intoduce it to the Immobiliser of each car and have all the keys for each car available also to code them too.
