yes itll work but itll throw a engine code for evap canister purge valve. which only 98 259n's have. but will not affect the performance or chip. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

It will work fine but you will get a CEL. If you don't mind the CEL you will be fine. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

It will work. I had to drive home with the 98 chip for my Z kit. 4000km later, no problems except for the cel which was looking for an emissions device I don't have in my car.
