Yes, that goes without saying. Always disconnect the battery before working on an electronic component. I did some more research and it seems that I can just enter the VIN, even though the engine is from a different vehicle, just as long as the engine is the same size. I will be ordering a PCM reprogrammed online.I will pay $200 for the part and install myself(EASY INSTALL) Shop wanted $700....I will update when i finish my install
