Do you have a pic of it, I don't think I would use brake cleaner... which is a dry cleanser... on electrical.

usually for electrical you can clean with a wire or tooth brush to expose contacts and then use some dielectric grease to promote contact and electrical connections

what are the car symptoms that caused you to pull the ecu? haven't really heard of one being dirty like that before

^^^ This is correct. You have to find another 05 rs ecu that is within the range of part numbers for the ecu's for this year and engine.

This ecu is tunable as some of you know. My brother has an 05 rs so I know
