The wiring loom from the plug near the battery to the 3 plugs near the ecu found in the drivers foot well

The SEH going in has multipoint injection so the whole inlet manifold/injection/air inlet will have to be changed along with the ecu. Not sure about the petrol pump. You could keep the exhaust manifold but not sure about SEH and the cat.

Don't forget about MOT emmision levels as you are putting a non cat engine into a mandatory cat car.
