Yes, but shift points would be wrong as the Wagon has a 3.23 diff, not a 3.08.

cheers

Nope, it'll be all good. As I said the only difference, and I doubt you will notice it, is the shift points. The ECU will shift at a 5% lower rpm than normal.

OK, so my car is a 95 Fairmont sedan with that code ecu in it. Is that because its got the different ratio diff or has someone replaced it with the wrong one at some point? I'm confused...
