wouldn't it be better/quicker to simply swap ECUs on one car?  that would
help minimize the variables of car mileage, state of tune, etc.  Of course
it would be harder on the one car, and not feasible if an ECU is tuned for
specific components (i.e RS2 MAFS, infjectors, or heavier WG spring, etc).

OTOH, knowing what MY car really had in it would be very good to know.
