Default Can I swap ECU's with another one?

I have a 2011 STI and I think my ECU is having issues (dont ask). So I found another 2011 STI ECU and was wondering if I could swap the two of them or do I have to take it to Subaru to get programmed.

You would need to get the keys synced by the dealer or if you know someone with a EcuTek cable they could sync it for you.. Most Brz or GTR guys have ecutek so if you know anyone it could save you some time and money

Thanks for that info. what if the ECU's have different codes on them?
Mine has "JE" the one I found has "ZH" or what about a "JJ" or "VM" guess its easier to just get a "JE" even though its more money?
