Hi there. The part number that you have is specific to your vehicle’s computer system. If you are wanting to replace the computer with an aftermarket computer, you can but you will need the computer flashed (programmed) to the VIN on your car. Visit the Weltune Auto Service sight for your computer and information. If you need further assistance with replacing your computer, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
