The original ECU is set up for your old 8V engine. The starter should still work and fuel pump as long as the wiring is the same. There is a 4 year difference. But the ECU setting for fuel/air ratio EGR etc. Etc. Will be totally different for a 16V engine. You need the ECU from the donor car for the powertrain to work correctly once running again !
