SCT chip in different EEC ?

I have a x3z ECU set up with a SCT 4 bank chip w/ a custom tune on it. Say my ECU goes bad, do I need to find another x3z ECU ONLY? Or can I use an a9l or whatever v8 mustang ECU I can get my hands on? Does the chip care or override and do its thing anyway?

You sure? not sure on all factory MAF fox ECUs but for instance I thought the A3M and A9L were almost the same..

My tuner, XXX Motorsports, told me A9L should work fine as long as I install my chip too.
