Switch from 95 to

Have a 95 Chevy truck that I am switching computer to 97. I have a 5 speed tranny and the 97 had a automatic 4 wheel drive. Am I going to have to change sensors on transmission to adapt?

IIRC, the '95 ECM (OBD I) has a replaceable "chip", while the '97 ECM (OBD II) has a flash ROM that will need a programmer. I think your proposed swap will be more trouble than you're anticipating.

You're going to have to change more than just sensors. As noted above, the computers are completely different, and the AT computers have a different programming from the MT computers. Why do you want this headache?

I have all the wiring and computer,dash, heads,and intake.plus fuel system. It's a project truck but I just have a different tranny. So basically I'm going to have to get someone to reprogram computer for different transmission
