2012 Remote Starter in 2008

Hey all,
I am planning on buying a 2012 key with the remote start and programming it to my 2008, yes it can be done and has been done. I want to know though if anyone has seen the ford remote start system on the 2012s and if I would be able to put it in my 2008. I would love to have the remote start button actually work. Thanks for the help in advance.

The remote start system on the 2011 and up trucks is integrated into the modules on the truck, it's not an 'add on' system like which is used in the 2008's.

The difference in the key(s) is SA stamped into the key vs. S near the head of the key. (And obviously the flicker built into the key head). This denotes 80 and 40 bit PATS transponders, respectively.

The 80 bit keys are backwards compatible to the early 40-bit style keys, but not the other way around if you wanted to use an earlier key in a later model truck (pointless trivia).

Yeah I understand that they key works, thanks for the info on the modules. Maybe I could get the new key programmed to operate a viper system or something.
