    The complete ABS unit is different, so it is a massive and expensive job.

    Yeah, but if he doesn't have tc he wants to know if he can fit it! (the whole TC system, not just the switch!)

    The tc was removed of the FL unless the ids option was ticked... who needs tc anyways, its a pain in the ass & just another thing to go wrong imo
