    some cars allow the ECUs to be swapped about without much issues whereas others are a pain

    Depends, if it was remapped for that car with specific mods it might not be any good for yours.

    A lad I know put a chipped ecu on his v6 astra with no issues
    I've also read on peoples diarys on another forum where they have swapped the ecu's with no problems either

    But I would only bother if you are getting the ecu for a bargain price;)
