Default 2010 ECU in a 2011

Hello all, this is my first post (aside from the intro post) since I've been browsing the site so I decided to join tonight while I'm bored at work. Anyway, to the point...

I know I can't be the first with the idea so has anyone tried to take an ECU from a 2010 Ram and put it in a 2011 so they can use a programmer? It's killing me that I can't put my DSP on my truck and the 2010 is practically identical so I'm tempted to find one that has been wrecked and buy the ECU. Just curious if I'm wasting my time and money or if its worth a shot. Gotta get rid of this MDS junk, really wish I could get rid of the Torque Management too but I know that hasn't been acomplished yet.

I don't know the answer but wanted to give your thread a bump back to the top. Maybe one of the more knowledgeable members can provide you with some insight. Welcome to the Z!

Well, I read that it is not a direct replacement. 1) It will not bolt into place like the existing. 2) The canbus will have to be reprogrammed to communicate. 3) Also read that the PCM is VIN specific, once programmed to a specific VIN it cannot be erased and reprogrammed. I guess that this idea is out the window.

If anyone has anything else to add to this feel free.

Alot of the electronics have been changed for the 2011...just wait...the programer will come soon enough and you can buy the second one out, cause i am buying the first one...lol...believe me i wanted the old one to work also, I have a 2007 Charger and was hoping the programer would work for both..
