The ECM will have to retain it's harness and components to allow it to work. Tuning ECM to new installation will take expertise and software allowing changes to be flashed to its memory.

maybe you could drop in a diesel...
Most engines just come off of the same assembly line as the car/truck engines and, while marine engines run at higher RPM for longer than cars, it's never as much of a load as tires hooking up with the road from a standstill unless the prop strikes an object. The ECM shouldn't need much tweaking unless a lot more air is being shoved in, although I do agree that the calibration should be specific to the hull/setup.
