Question putting an 02 jetta tdi into a 99 beetle tdi

I had the unfortunate experience of my 1999 beetle tdi "dropping a valve" on the highway. I soon found out how expensive a replacement longblock was. I needed at least a long block because the valve train came apart and damaged the head and cylinders. I found a used complete 2002 jetta 1.9 L TDI.

The swap seems to be going smoothly until I get to the injector pump. The 2002 looks different than the 1999. Will it work? and if so does anyone know the wiring color mapping? It has different color wires and a different connector. I don't want to screw something up. will the ECM have to be changed or reprogramed?

It the 2002 pump won't work, is it OK to put the 1999 pump on the 02 motor? Everything else seems to interchange just fine.

Should be exactly the same. Did both cars originally have the same type of transmission?

Any pictures?

Default tdi swap

yes same transmission, both 5 speeds. I don't have any pics but I'll try to get some on later tonight or this weekend.

Any idea on the wiring harness color differnces? I would rather use the newer injector pump if possible.

Is the plug on the end the same? You shouldn't have to cut wires.

Are the injector plugs different between a manual tranny and an auto ? Just a thought.
