Can I use another Cobalt ECU?

This may be a silly question, but im looking at getting the zzp tune for my 2010 cobalt 2.2 5 speed in the very near future. I dont want to spend the money for the hptuner, and I'd rather not go a week or more without my car sending my ecu away. I have a 2006 cobalt auto as a parts car, would that ecu work in my 2010 5 speed until I get the tuned ecu back? Im a noob in this regard, so I apologize if this is a silly question. Thanks.

You could go to the junkyard and get an ecu from a 2009 or 2010 cobalt like yours and send it to them

I recently used these guys and they are great. They set the ECU up to your VIN and all you have to do is a security relearn to get it to work. You just need the part number on your ECU and your VIN.

I have an 09 SS ECU that I don't use, if you want to buy it, very cheap.

No worries, just trying to keep the confusion down for others and those that Google issues.
