Because the steering columns are on opposite sides, meaning the harness from the ecu connects to the other side. And the fuse block is on the drives side.

f-con what?



if it's the old school "black box" version.

then yes, you NEED a factory ECU.



that one was made to be a piggyback controller. as every f-con since then has been (except for the ProV)
