IIRC the DBA has a stand alone VDC module where the CBA has the logic contained in the TCM.

Okay, CBA and DBA have SLIGHTLY different traction controls. They are BOTH contained in the ABS pump under the hood. Both DBA and CBA have transmission programming that HELPS with both modules (power pull, etc.)
The CBA came with the most modern available logic at that time. The DBA is a SIGNIFICANTLY upgraded unit and used to cost A LOT more than the CBA unit (original OEM - $800 CBA, $1200 DBA). The unit is prone to failure in BOTH cars. The CBA unit had some buggy code in it, and held the car back way too much. The downhill logic was much worse.
I know NickTO had installed one in his CBA. The rumor was that it required an upgrade to the DBA ecu. I now have independent confirmation that the DBA unit WILL WORK plug and play on the CBA car. If they work the same, I cannot confirm. There will be signals on the CANBUS the DBA unit will be looking for that won't be there, and it will also be sending signals that won't be picked up. But I know when installed it will control the car and ABS properly. But maybe not all the fancy smancy around the corner and down the hill stuff, but if anything it will be really CLOSE and at least up to CBA standards. This is also convenient because the CBA unit was prone to failures, and the DBA unit seems better and more robust. It is also now cheaper. The CBA unit is now rare and expensive.
