Default what power fc

Hi guys, hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
Purchased what I now have found out to be a converted 97 impreza.
Car had no history, and on further inspection it looks to my untrained eye to be a 94 ej20H block converted to run a single vf23 turbo.
I checked the ECU and it is a yellow 3 plug 8s unit, which i believe to be from a UK delivered wrx according to several web pages.

The transmission is a TY752VN3BA.

After that long winded history, my question is - Am I able to purchase a 3 plug power fc to suit a 97 model aus delivered wrx and run with it (even it does need the pins swapped over) or do I need to look for a specific model power FC as I have a "bitsa" vehicle?

any info greatly appreciated

I'll need to check in the morning but pretty sure 8S is a MY98 ECU. Where are your ignition coils located, coil on plug, coil pack in centre of manifold or sitting off to the passenger side on the manifold?
