I've seen literally hundreds of 86s bled with the old school yellow funnel and they are all fine and work as intended. Nothing wrong with it.

Yes, your ECU can be programmed to another car and they can use the Ecutek license. Just don't change the VIN number on the ECU to the other car because then the license will stop working.
