FW17 isn't an RPO. Is this a typo?

FW2 is 3.06

2.83 would get you better fuel mileage, but you lose your get up and go like you get with the 3.06.

Yes, if the PCM doesn't know about the different trans, it may throw a code about improper gear ratio. So yes, it would be better to grab the matching PCM.
