2 Goats swapping transmissions, expert help needed
First let me say I'm looking for answers or a direction where to ask to get the answers. I'm not looking for your opinion on the idea or suggestion about buying one with the right drivetrain. And sorry if you've seen this thread on all the gto websites. We're hoping to find the person that knows the answers.
The person that is getting my M6 is doing all the work for free. It's a straight one for the other. He has a shop at his house with every tool and even a lift. He's no noob at working on cars just not familiar with the whole computer system on the car . His is an '05 with a built Level VI 4L65E and he's getting my M6 with a monster 3 from my '06. Here's the questions we need answers to.
1. Does he have to swap PCMs? Or can they be tuned respectively for their new applications?
His car (the A4) already has an aftermarket TCM from Lingenfelter.
2. Do the TCMs also have the VINs "programmed" into them?
3. If so, is he going to have to have that re-programmed as well when he installs it into my car?
He also understands he's going to have to deal with re-programming the DICs....which are also VIN-matched, as he understands it.
4. Would it just be simpler to swap every computer component from each car...PCM, BCM, TCM, DIC, etc???
I appreciate any help I can get related to getting this accomplished.
