On the computer, it has always seemed to me that the OBD II's could be re-programmed(flashed) to whatever was needed, then someone chimes in and says there's something particular between different engine, etc. I've also seen where computer swaps will work the basics fine, but certain options on the vehicle won't work unless the vehicle VIN is flashed to the computer in use. From what I've seen, it tends to be more about throwing ros in the way of exactly shat we are trying to do with these swaps. My suggestion on computers is to use as close to what matches the vehicle to minimize unforseen issues. Oh for the days of carb swaps and no computers.
