Will be slightly more aggressive.

Will alter shift points, it'll hold off going into 4th gear until after 80kph.

Will make your penis larger.

You'll loose the correct ecu for the climate control (nothing you'll notice tho)
I think the Fairmont Ecu's optimize engine rpm, speed and temps to help the climate control a little better, but i could be talking s**t :/
