Default ill be preforming a chassis swap soon!

ight so here is whats happening! my car is a 96 which mean its ****** OBD2 (fail) and it also has alot of body imperfections and it has be wrecked before and never repaired correctly before i bought the car. soooooo.......im getting a 95 shell really soon (if all goes according to plan)

my problem right now is trying to decide if i want to sell my MSPNP for 96-97 and buy another for a 94-95 (ill probly lose some money like this, seeing how i cant sell it for what i paid for it :( ) or i can spend Zero dollars and swap my 96 harness into the 95......


what are some other options for me?

has anybody modified a PNP unit to work for a different year model, i know there are some differences between the two, emissions ****, sensors, and wire placement in the pin connectors at the ecu!

Return your car to stock. Sell aftermarket parts. Sell your stock car. Get a clean stock car and turbo it. No use in doing all that extra work when you dont have to. Keep eyes open for good deals on CL.
