m8 if yout thinking of attempting it its easy i have a c20let in a 1.0 shell im using omex mangement but the reason people say 1.0 shells r harder is because the ecu sits in the engine bay and not in the kick panel all u gota do is cut the wires back that go into the engine bay and trace them to the kick panel easy as its just follow and cut
