Ok, I understand that piggy back is altering the new computer with the old one. I think... Anyway, I'm doing the swap at the end of this month<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I can't wait, however, I'm in such a rush to get everything together<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I heard that you can piggy back the 1.8 Beta into the 1.5 Alpha. Right? So exactly how is this done so I can attempt to do this swap in somewhat of a smooth process? The motor I'm swapping is the '98 Hyundai Elantra 1.8 DOHC 16 valve. Do I need the computer out of that exact year? Can I use the 97-99 Tiburon computer? It is the same motor externally. PLEASE, somebody help me!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

The Tib ECU should be fine and you will not piggy back it with the 1.5ltr ecu you will replace it instead.

you will need the 1.8 computer. a piggy back is a whole seperate unit that works with your ecu, such as the apex-i safc. this may help you out but it is not necessary for things to run smoothly with the swap.

Cool; so I don't need to piggyback anything?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> Another question; can I use the same wiring harness or don't things match up? Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks guys<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> Today I took off my intake manifold to port it out. I'm getting my income tax back in like two weeks, as soon as I get that, I'm buying the few parts I still need to do the swap. My friend is in charge of the wiring; so we're gonna have to figure it out ourselves. As soon as we do, I'll update everybody on how we did (what wires needed lengthened) or whatever. Thanks anyway, I appreciate it<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
