ECU is the same, and remember that the Elantra makes like 2 or 3 more BHP. For replacement purposes, I'm 90% sure it's the same.
Shifter's swap, the GK 5 speed shifter is about an inch shorter, but it's not a "short shifter", as the lower portion is hte same length. I remember seeing it for like 25 bucks from dealers. 01+ tib shifters swap, but it's easier to look for the GK.
I was wondering cause the tmw shifters list for only 03+. So if I were to order an 03 tib shifter, would it fit my 02??
Also how is it that the elantra gt makes more power than the tib?? I was thinking of switching ecu's so as to get a better curve.
I didn't think that the ECU's had different curves, but I remember that after they had the class action suit for the HP claims that the XD had 135 and the 4 cyl had 132, probably from the exhaust differences.
I do know that the ECU's changed when the beta got cvvt, so I wouldn't try one of those. But if they have a different curve and you can get one real cheap, go for it.
