I have a 2015 XP-4 1000 and I recently purchased a HCT tuned 2016 XP 1000 ECU. I installed it in my RZR and it seems to runs great. I was told it would need to be re-tuned for my 2015 since it's set up for a 2016 (I called HCT). Does anyone know if it's necessary for me to send it in for a "re-map", or are the 2015 and 2016 ECU's interchangeable?
Thanks

Does anyone know if running a 2016 XP1K ECU in a 2015 would cause any problems? Engine starts right up, idles nice and doesn't throw any engine trouble lights. I've only been able to run it around the block a few times since I live in the city, and it runs great. I want to know for sure that it would be safe to take out for a weekend of off-roading.

It will work fine. 2015-2017 XP1000 is identical in that regard

You can freely swap 2015 to 2017 XP 1000 ECU's without issue. You can also run a 2014 XP 1000 ECU in any year XP 1000(2014-2017), but you can NOT go backwards and run a 2015+ in a 2014. The seat belt bypass wire is non existent on a 2014 harness.

You can NOT however, run an XP 1000 ECU in an XPT, or vice versa. Do not try, it will fry your computer.

That's great news! I had no luck finding any info regarding that. So the 14' thru 17' XP-1000 engine ECU is the same except for the added seat belt circuit in 2015?

14 has slightly different mapping, but 15-17 is the same. All aftermarket reflashes from 15 to 17 are going to be the same.

Are the ECUs between years the same except for the flash? If I bought a 2014 XP1K ECU and had it reflashed to a turbo map is that possible?
Yes, I can turn a 2014 XP1000 ECU into a Turbo ECU no problem.

Could I install an 2017 or 2018 xp4t ecm into a 2016 xp4t? Would it need to be flashed?

The 14 1ks have no o2 sensor or catalytic converters. So yes, there is alot of difference in the map.
