I'm racing a 2.2TBI dodge shadow in Lemons this weekend, and I want to bring a spare motor, since the TBI motors do not have a reputation for reliability (apparently they like to throw rods when under extended load). I had a 2.2 motor picked out, but I was about to go pick it up and I found out that the engine won't spin freely. Sounds like a bad sign to me.
They say they have plenty of 2.5's in stock. Can I run the 2.5 with the stock 2.2 computer, or should I try to pick up a computer as well?
If I have to buy a computer, how do I know which computers will swap in directly? Judging from http://minimopar.net/ecu/index.html it sounds like any 2.5 TBI computer from 1990+ should work.

Also the yard said they have a 2.5 spirit that I could get the computer out of, but it's AT, and my shadow is MT. Any chance this will work?
