You need the full engine wiring loom, ECU and immobiliser plus the chip reader also

The 2000 16v is a drive by wire engine so you'll also need to change the accelerator pedal to an electronic one. It's not a clean engine swap I'm afraid

It would be better to sell the car and buy a 6N2 for the amount of work involved
