I'd say give it a try. I think the only difference in ECM's is the software loaded in it. I have inadvertently loaded auto software into my ECM. It runs, but runs weird. Caution,,,It will start with the clutch out and in gear cause it thinks it's an auto.

DON"T DO IT... it will burst into flames and you'll have nothing but a pile of ash... you should sell it to me for $500 RIGHT NOW... *grin*

All joking aside, it shouldn't hurt it to try, still might not work, but doubt it will make anything worse. Good luck... one hell of a deal right there!

I haven't had this problem, but I've read about the windshield seal leaking water down the firewall and frying PCM's and GEM's. Easy enough to check with a water hose.
