Help Engine swap 156 sele advice needed

i am replacing my knackered engine (bent conrod) from my 156 selespeed with a second hand engine from another sele.
my problem is the manifold is different on the donar engine.
i intend to keep the manifold from my car and do a straight swap.
i have read the 2.0 ts engine changed slightly in 2000. euro2 and euro3 my car was registered in april 2001 so i guess its the euro3.
will the euro 2 affect the sellespeed gearbox.?
im hoping the different manifold is just a diifference in the exhaust system mine has the flexi pipe infront of the cat. not the all in one mega expensive one.
can anybody advise me if i will encounter any probs. the last thing i want to do is start having problems with the gearbox.
anyhelp would be hugely appreciated as im starting to panick. thanks in advance. Neil
