    i dont see why it wont. obd0 is obd0 so long as you are mpfi. dfpi will require a conversion

    PM5 = DPFI.

    You need to do a MPFI conversion.

    PR4s do not run ZCs very well in my experience. USDM PG7, PM6 work decent, and the JDM PM7 work better. Chipped PM6 with some love work amazing.
