technically the ECM does have the vin on it. But i highly doubt there is a way to get the VIN off of it. Usually when you have to replace a ECM you have to have it flashed to the car's specific info... IE. the VIN. wait...i was rambling.... Yes he can use the ECM w/o anyone knowing besides us.

its also unlikely the stealership will run the vin against a stolen vin database

however - the inspection lane may be a different deal altogether

Is the starter disable (05+) entirely contained within the ECM or does it rely on external widgets?

if he goes to emissions and they plug into the car it will show up as a stolen car right?"

I went through emissions with an ECU from a car that came from a junkyard back east. Definitely doesn't match the VIN of my car. I don't think they check it...
