I'm curious as I have access to one and was thinking of dropping this in rather than Abbott or Hirsh. Any thoughts anyone? Well, given that the ECU tuners make a specific point of finding out what ECU you have, what the connector number on the car is and so on, I'd say it'd probably be a problem. As described to me - they send a loaner unit out, which is _not_ matched to your car and will work but won't be anywhere near optimal, and then they send your own unit back after having tweaked it (or you can just be without the car for a week). Another problem would be that the box knows where it's from - and any mismatch of box -vs- car will show up next time it's looked at with a tech-2 system (your next service, for instance). Probably more trouble than it's worth, besides the guy who owns the Viggen would undoubtedly notice if a stock 2.0L ECU was suddenly controlling his 2.3L Viggen engine. Dave Hinz
