Default Noob question: MSPNP for 1.8 on a 1.6?

I'm being offered a MSPNP for a 1.8 car (not sure of the model number) for a low price that I can't really refuse. Before I accept, I need to know:

1) If it's possible to rewire it for a 1.6
2) How difficult it'll be (I have ZERO experience in this stuff)
3) What materials I'd need

Thanks.

Flame suit on.

EDIT: It's a Braineack-built Megasquirt for 1995 1.8liter. Also, it comes with a boomslang harness (whatever that means).

itll be easy to rewire for a 90-93 install. need to move maybe 5-10 wires around on the harness.

Also, note that Braineack's devices are a bit different from the MSPNP - MSPNPs are a line we make and they use a printed circuit board, making them a bit harder to change between years.

Okay, sounds good. I was about to fire on a purchase for a MSPNP 90-93 this morning just to avoid the hassle but if it's going to be easy I won't be bothered.

Meaning yours would be easier to switch over.
