You are not running Jdm avcs with a Jdm or usdm ecu with an accessport. A Jdm v7, v8 is an easy swap into a 02-05 wrx using the corresponding jdm ecu and avcs wiring. A v9 with a v9 Jdm ecu is more complicated because the ecu is immobilized so you would also need the ignition and key from the donor vehicle. The only exception been a v9 spec c that are not immobilized. In any case you will be running open source engine management. You could run a v9 engine with a v8 fairly easily, some sensor adjustment are needed and tunning for whatever stuff you run like exhaust, etc. A v7 is also possible, same deal with sensor calibration in the ecu just like using a v8 ecu but the v8 and v9 engines come with twin scroll turbos while v7 come wit single scroll. All this info is available on the ej207 owners and ej207 info thread, search, read.
