It's best to use the ECU and harness that were meant for the engine you have. ie: JDM engine with JDM harness and ECU

It is possible to use any 2nd Gen 3S-GTE ECU with any 2nd Gen engine but there are differences in the sensors/wiring/ECU pinouts between JDM and USDM that make it easiest to use the combination that was originally put together by Toyota.

USDM ECU on a JDM motor would maybe lose you a couple HP, but it might be better for the car if you have to run lower grade fuel.

I run 94 all day erry day, since after conversion I think the US equivalent to the JDM gas the JDM ECU wants is 95 or something.
