Is that an 07 non california car?I bet if you also use bcm and ignition keys the system would not know it wasnt an 07. Might need to reprogram the radio.
Now if you do as you suggested you will need to rebond the ECM to the to your BCM. This is where a good programimg toos will help. Get to know where you can get some Tech2 help
There may be a slight difference in the engine harness. Doesnt your 08 have air injection? I dont think the 07 US uses it.
