For the tC, all you need is a standard Toyota harness for the wiring portion. There's nothing really special about it. You will lose your steering controls for the radio unless you get a separate steering wheel interface unit like the Metra Axxess ASWC-1. Not a big deal if you don't care to have the steering controls.

i know of no car where the radio would contain any parts of the car's ECU..

no expensive wiring harness. it usually runs between $5-10 for the wiring harness.
then as bbsciontc mentioned, you'll need another adapter to keep your steering wheel controls.
