I have a sinking feeling that even if I do this, the USDM Forester ECU won't be able to read the cam triggers correctly because the sensors and/or cam pickups are different
The cam pickups are different you have to swap the cams to usdm to work with your ECU.

The JDM 2 wire sensors are magnetic type and the USDM 3 wire are Hall Effect, the triggers on the camshafts are different to reflect this as well
