Will a JDM ecu work for a US motor?

Title says it all, im debating getting a H22A USDM engine but would need to find a ecu for it, I found some for cheap but they are JDM, will it work?

Would there need to be some modding?

Thanks in advance.

so you can use a US ecu with a JDM engine but you just have to wir a pressure switch? So would that mean a JDM ecu would work with a US engine if you took out the pressure switch?
