It seems unlikely those systems would be different. They are the same generation, same software, same basic layout. All the stuff on the outside of the motor is the same too as far as the electronic sensors are concerned. Shouldn't everything just plug right into the existing harness in the wagon? Especially if the wagon is a stickshift, I can't think of anything that would be different from a stickshift RWD 2.5L and a stickshift RWD 3.0L with a set of cams in in it. Swapping over the ECU should take care of the engine software and nothing else is changing right?

Im not particularly well versed on the ins and outs of OBD-II so I'm just spitballing, but it seems logical.
