13b-re swap question

Ok so I've been thinking about going from the 13bt to a 13b-re. I know I want to ditch the twins and go with a GT40 or that Aspec 500R. I know this will involve taking the water pump and front cover off my 13bt to put on the 13b-re. But what I'm wondering is if I can still use my microtech that was programmed for the 13bt. Basically I'm asking if some of the sensor read the same or if I can transplant them to the 13b-re, like the CAS for example? Or do I have to send it off to mircotech to be reprogrammed like if you want to use it for a 13b-rew?

Sensors are the same. I think the RE CAS is the same as the FC CAS, but worst case you can swap the FC CAS on.

Thanks aaron so this is pretty much a straight swap. According to everything I've read so far.

Use the 13bt front cover complete, and modify/remake centre plate engine mount.

Im starting my 13bRE in my s4 today with a s4 frontcover, CAS and LT8 set up for s4 13bt.
It should work fine. The TPS is different (4pins insted of 3) but one of them are only N/C

I fired it up today! What a great feeling having my first build running with no problems. Some small leaks but thats easy fix..
Specs are:
13bRE (20 000km), fresh rebuild, exhaust ported, gt35r, lager injectors and the LT8 with a S4 CAS worked great!
