How do you identify which car an ECU/ECM came from?

I have a couple of Subaru ECU's (or ECM's) pulled from a junkyard. Is there an easy way to figure out what model/year/engine/transmission Subaru they are for?

For example, one ECU I have is labelled as:
DK6 7Y
22611 AD57A
JA18000 DK6 7515

How does one translate this info to something useful?

I found this info from a web that sells ECU's. Useful for searching and identifying ECU's (or ECM's as some people call them)


I did a search under "Part number like" and entered "AD57A" (I didn't enter 22611) and voila, I was told the ECU is from a 1998 Legacy 2.2 with left hand drive and auto transmission. This sounds correct to me based on what the seller told me.

This is the full subaru part # 22611AD57A

You should be able to give that number to the dealer or Jamie, and they'll be able to tell you where it came from.
