Using the LTX8 in two different cars?

I was reading that you can have the EMS setup in one car then un plug it and lug it into another car if it has a harness installed.

My question is can you do this between a Turbo and N/a? Say I have it 80% of my time in my N/a Sport but on the weekends I park my Sport and Swap into the TII. Could I do this? how hard would it be to switch the settings over and all that?

Yes it is quite easy to do this.
It's simply a matter of having 1 separate program for each different car.You can save up to 4 programs in the memcals.
Just plug the ecu from one car to another,load the correct program for that vehicle & hit the key.It will be a 2 minute job

Won't you have to send the LTX8 back to Microtech depending on what has been removed and what sensors you want to use?

From what I can tell both cars can use the same types of sensors. The only one that I will be reconfiguring is the TPS but I can just get TWO GM TPS's instead of one and then it will work just fine I think. If it doesn't work then I will just stick with the N/a ECU.

The calibration between the factory turbo & non turbo sensors are the same,including the TPS so you wont have to have the unit re configured.

Can the same be said for any current Haltech models or Wolf models?

I would think that you could swap the ECU and maps between two cars in about 10 minutes if you had the ECU mounted for easy access.

Yes, but the Haltech and Wolf EMS models are universal, which means they have the added advantage of being able to run on different types of engines without sending them back to the factory. This means that you could swap the same Haltech or Wolf ECU between a TII RX-7 and a V-8 Camaro, for example. The downside to the universal EMS concept is that it takes more time to initially configure for a given engine type, while Microtech takes care of all this for you at the factory.
