    been told the b28m52tu engine will go straight in to a car with a b25m52tu engine in it, and that you can run it with the original DME of the 323!, but you can get the Dme reflashed with the 2.8 software.
    First of all, is the DME the ecu? and are they right in what they say, is the 2.8 the stroked version of the 2.3?

    The DME is the ECU yes. As for the engine swap, it should swap yes, but the air flow meter size/throttle body size may need checking.
