The auto transmission control modules differ between the EECIV(EB, ED, NC) and EECV (EF &EL) and you cannot expect them to function when you swap them over. Short answer = not worth it.

If you are talking about the engine's ECU, again, it will not function but this is because you will need a loom swap.

Not worth it, same motor/box regardless.
