I wouldn't think twice about it, as long as it works, it works.

does the ECU have to match tho? i thought if your car was an ABS / Cruise / AC car you needed a Computer to match?

asme as if you had some or none of those features?

also, Dual / Single comps are different?? im not 100% correct on this but i dont want to see you pull the wong computer

DOHC/SOHC has to match, no exceptions. If they are mismatched, the engine may run, and if it does, it will run like a pile of shit.
DOHC wiring harness to ECU connector might be different than a SOHC ECU connector as well.
Years should match, if not, keep it within a year or two, and the same emissions sytem type (OBD1 and OBD2).
Also, if you have the features such as ABS and cruise, then the computer must support it.
I'm not 100% sure on the ABS, there might be a seperate computer for that.
But try to match it as closely as possible.
