so I have the Viper 590XV, and I want to get the 2 way alarm Viper 5900. It was professionally installed, however I want to know if this is a difficult process to swap out. Are the units harnesses the same? Or are they different?....

All the wires are the same but on a 590 you don't need door triggers and the siren output is used for horn. The antenna is also different.
I would say that change out would take about an hour.

good luck programming the new brain, its no fun if you don't know what you're doing/ don't have a DEI bitwriter. Most alarms can handle only 1 or 2 sirens from the siren output, so if want any more than that you need to add a relay. You should be able to easily power 4 or 5 sirens off 1 relay..
