So I bought a 2003 Dakota somebody swapped the engine with a 4.7, computer wont read. Is it worth messing around with?
I figured I could program the ECU from a 2003 Dakota 4.7 scrapyard vehicle and swap it in? Or would that not work?

hey sorry it's been so long. so I figured out it is the 16 tooth tone ring and it is supposed to be a 32 facepalm

So now the next question I know I could have the motor pulled and possibly swap the tone ring, but is that only an option to go from a 32 ring down to a 16 or can it work the other way around? Also another question could I simply get a ECU for a 3 plug connector snip the wiring off at the harness here and do that? I'm pretty good with electrical so that shouldn't be too big of a problem if I was able to find the diagrams for both... does the ECU need to have the specific VIN number for that engine or could I take the VIN number off of a wrecked vehicle of the same year with the 3 plug ECU and have it work?
