Is there anything else to consider about a swapped Z1, I'm guessing the ecu has to be from the z1, anything else?

Thanks in advance.
I would say your going to loose 4 to 5 mpg in 5th gear at 55mph.
Also the D15z1 had egr with a control box but I would not bother with it unless you need it for emissions.
