Big trouble, the ECU isn't like swapping a wheel, it's coded to the car and would need to be the right part number and it would also need to be coded to the other cars modules

You're best bet is to check and install the wiring then get access to ford software / clones and get that on your car enable cruise everywhere

You can get them for about 350 pounds, and there's a few guys on here who have it and it works a treat for what they need

AFAIK you can find a clone for something like 160 USD... much lower than 350 pounds

It depends on what you need to do... if you just need to modify asbuilt file, I think that will work... and if it does not, just return it and claim you money back.
