Question 2006 Subaru Baja Turbo ECU replacement question/radiator sub fan stuck on high!

Hey all, I have been searching high and low and can't figure this out...I just bought a 2006 Subaru Baja Turbo 5MT with 60k on it. The Accessory Fan (RH Side) is constantly running on high with a cold engine, even with the AC off, inside fan off, and the controls set on vent. (I am 99.9% sure it is the ECU) Anyways, I grabbed my engine and transmission code and it is identical to what was used on the 2006 Legacy 2.5GT. (Engine Code is EJ255BWGXB. Transmission code is TY754VWGAA). I found a 2006 Legacy GT ECU on eBay for $175 http://r.ebay.com/vbr0EW and I was wondering if it would plug and play into my wiring harness without any issues. I am worried about the whole "immobilizer" thing...the Baja doesn't have one. Also, if anyone know where I can get a real Baja turbo ECU on the cheap (or get mine repaired), that would also be an acceptable solution.

It won't work without changing the wiring harness around. The pinouts are different because things were moved around to make room for the CAN bus that the Baja doesn't have...I am now thinking about getting an 04/early 05 Forester 2.5XT ECU (Pre-CAN bus) and cloning the Baja's programming over, provided the pinmaps line up. Or if anyone can tell me what transistor/cap/resistor I need to replace to fix this ECU, that would also work!
