swapping ecu from uk to import

Hi i have found that my ecu on my 1996 uk scooby is a (3 plug) and i cannot remap this ecu,

my question! can i swap for an import ecu and expect it to run good!

my issue is i dont have enough money to buy remappable and get remapped!

i dont need to much extra and would like to do mods slowly over time 250bhp would be nice soon though!

any help would be great.

nope, will be wrong for the car. afriad your options are pretty limited. for the money then simtek is prob your best bet for the cheapest decent solution, if money no option then syvecs.

1996 should be mappable with a daughter board such as ESL by the way. Its 97/98 that need a whole new ecu
