Etec emm swap

Does anybody know if you can swap an secondhand emm to another engine?

I have the software/tool. Reading around I'm getting mixed messages.

As I see it you put COLDTEST on the replacement drop the correct map on it and the install the injectors (or even copy the old one and drop that onto the new one) and hey-presto

Am I kidding myself or is this in basic(I know it never works like this) form what is needed?

My engine isn't sending a charge to battery and it's not the stator so it looks like the emm.

Any advise would go down a treat!

It certainly can be done. My understanding is that there's a certain amount of "knowhow" involved but there are no practical issues. When mine were done the engine memory was cleared down.

I have done it, the new emm must be the correct model for the engine it's going into. Connect the laptop to the engine with the existing (old) emm & copy the configuration file from the old emm. Fit the new emm & copy the config file . The software has a utility for the whole process with step by step instructions. The entire job takes under an hour.
