when you unplug your ECU it gets flashed there are few ways to flash an ECU. Look them up nothing hard. But if your looking for a dealer to do it then it will cost a pretty penny.

Yes you can take just for say 1996 dodge neon ECU and put it in a 1997 neon. As long its the same year and same wire harness i think. Or same generation

No i dont think these computers are the same as all the other ones where you can just get a computer from another car and throw it in and it work, on the srt4's you have to get it flashed to your vin number in order for it to work properly. I just dont know how there gonna flash it to my vin number when my cars not a srt4.
