Pondering a swap.

Odd question but where on engine itself is all the anti-theft communication info housed.

Can I swap a 4.8 in for a 4.4 move that crap over & carry on?

Bim Coding travel squad.

Just saw that these guys are currently in Dallas.
Anyone dealt with them before. 2014 nav update for $20.00 seems more than reasonable.
