Default Tuned ECU Compatibility - 2004 vs 2007

Tried searching, but couldn't come up with an answer. I have a BCB Stage 2 box that came out of my 2004 9-5 Aero that I sold a few years back. I recently acquired a 2007 9-5 wagon and was wondering if the tune would work on my new car?

Obviously, I'll need to change the immobilizer code with a tech 2, which I have. Beyond that, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Thoughts?

Might work, might not, depending variants of both cars.

It could work. But I'm not sure if tech2 will allow you to marry it because of different VIN in ECU?

Nothing else to do then test it in your car and try to program it.

As mentioned above, might work, might not... Might throw codes, might not.

It'll work no issues, as long as you have the Stage II hardware on the newer car
