MAZDA TRIBUTE 05 ECU COMPATIBILITY PLS HELP!

Hi. i have a big problem here. i buy a mazda tribute 2005 with a burned ecu.

mine is Mazda tribute 2005 V6 3.0L automatic.

mine has a 5L8A-12A650-AAD Part Number ECU.

and a familiar buy this ecu: 5L8A-12A650-XD

will this ecu fit mine mazda?? can we reprogram this ecu so it can work with mine? because i see it says for 2.3L and mine is 3.0L V6.

I would find one with the same part number. Did he post the VIN number to check actual parts list?

My best guess is no. Only way to know is maybe compare wiring diagrams. Obviously some circuits will be missing from the 4 cyl PCM but if others are the same I will give it a maybe.
