02 GTS ECU swap

I bought a ECU from a 01 GTS to put in my 02 GTS to get rid of that stupid limiter. All I have to do is just plug in the new ecu and everything will work fine or is there more I should worrie about?

The 02 GTS uses a different knock sensor setup than 00-01. I believe 02 has two separate sensors instead of just one from previous years.

You'll get a CEL, and the engine will go into safe mode, retarding timing and making the car slower than an 02. wink
