G'day there, just a quick question: is it possible to put an ecu from a sedan (EL I6) into a wagon (EL I6)

The reason I ask is that the diff ratios are different. Wagin = 3.23

seedan = 3.08 or 3.45

Would the different ratios stuff up the ecu's "thinking"?

No issue with that. Diff gears has effect on the ecu.
