Yes, with all the electronics and CAN-BUS it's a intensive job to make everything work again.
Beside the engine ECU, you also have the body ECU, and they have to communicate together, mostly the body ECU don't recognize the new engine ECU because it's not a familiar engine for that body ECU.

Re: 100hp possible engine swap?

Hi,
If you need any help with insurance for an engine swap at all then please feel free to drop me a line.
I had a completely standard electroclassh grey 100HP for 6 years. Loved it. Not sure I would have wanted much more power though. Seemed pretty perfect as it was.
Regards,
Dan.

I'd rather put my gentlemen vegetables in a vice than insure through Adrian Flux.
