I NEED HELP 2000 TL j32a2 swap

I swapped a j32a2 along with a j32a2 ecu in my base TL and my mechanic said because of antitheft reasons and codes it might cut the injectors so it might not start up! Has any one had this problem or know how to fix it?

If the new ECU came with the key that was tied to it you can simply tape both keys together to get it running. If not, most automotive locksmith's can program the new ECU to work with your old keys.

The ECU definitely needs to be programmed.
