Chips, Calibration Codes, and Cheap Parts

A buddy of mine recently wrecked his truck, so he made me a pretty good offer on some of his parts. I picked up his full gauge setup with pillar (banks boost, egt, and trans) and an 80hp Banks Big Hoss chip for 200 bucks. The only issue I'm having is that his truck was an 01 and mine is a 2000, all other things the same. Will I have to get the chip reburned for my vehicle calibration code, or are the two years similar?

pretty sure they're identical bud as long as you have the same trans.

So if I install the chip, will it either run or not? Like what are the potential issues with not getting it reprogrammed? Are there other features that may not operate properly? Thanks so much,

-justin

Anyone? I'm hesitant to risk messing up my truck by just plugging it in and running it, but in the same breath I don't want to pay the 50 dollar reflashing fee if it's not needed...

You will burn up the computer or ecm in your truck my buddie done that. Ford had different ecm codes for each year. had a friend that bought a chip and done that and the chip not being burned for his truck caused that.
