2004 996 GT3 3.6L ENGINE - INTO A - 1998 996 C2 3.4L BODY SHELL

2004 996 GT3 3.6L ENGINE - INTO A - 1998 996 C2 3.4L BODY SHELL
We have been looking at the body shells & PET diagrams.
- Understand the GT3 engine/box is longer & heavier (?)
The 2 key parts that seem different are on: PET "REAR END" DIAGRAM - 801-35
A - TERMINAL PIECE - item 1 - this is VERY different.
C2: - 996 551 973 00
GT3: - 996 551 173 90
B - REAR WALL - item 9 - large piece - but seems quite similar?
C2: - 996 502 911 00
GT3: - 996 502 191 91
Would most appreciate any advice re:
- Are these the relevant different body parts?
- any other different parts people can think of?
- Can we use the existing C2 REAR WALL to mount engine on to etc?
- as guessing its a big job to swap in a GT3 REAR WALL!!
nb- should have clarified:
A- we are also swapping in my GT3 Cup Transaxle/Gearbox
B- also fitting my GT3 engine wiring harness to manage GT3 engine. The GT3 engine wiring harness looks like it will "plug & play" into the existing C2 harness - @ just behind the seats - hopefully!
1 - do you think this will still cause issues with the WIRING for the GT3 engine e-throttle?
(As the Carrera 2 did not have e-throttle back in 1998)
2 - the GT3 box is longer I think - true? fitting issues?
