I think it's necessary to get the computer from the same year as the engine, if that's what your saying. Within the 1stG there are year to year changes. If i recall correctly, 93 & 94 ECUs have a feature that makes upgrades difficult, while the earlier ones take better to basic management mods.
If you haven't already, take a look at http://www.dsm.org/
for a heap of info on all the differences.
Thats cool that you've got an experienced DSM'er to give you a hand. The few car guys that I know are all old school low-tech V8 hot rodders. I think things like ECUs and multi-port fuel injection scares them! :??:
Either way, they're pretty stoked about the whole concept of 200+hp in a tiny car like that. :devious:
