Question type: Car Customization

Can I take a motor and transmission out of a 1995

a 1987 gmc truck

1 Answer


there are modules, and your ECM is set to that motor, and the TCM transmission control module may be of an advanced setup as is the BCM fade the dimmer seems to be the trend nowadays ~ those modules must be compatible or re-programmed to the new environment~
