M44 wiring harness problem

Hi, everyone.I am a new member here. I live in the island of St Lucia in the caribbean. i recently bought a 1999 318i from someone here. It had an M43 engine in it but it was no good. I got the car for a dirt cheap price. It is a european model however a friend ordered an engine from Miami for me. So I ended up with an M44 engine. It came without a harness so he just got me the harness and computer. A friend and I are putting the engine in ourselves and we were trying to make the M44 engine work with the M43 harness but no luck. So now i have the right harness and computer, the problem is that we can't see where the plugs/connections are for the M44 wiring harness on the engine. Is there any way I can get any pictures of where the connections are on the engine. I have tried everywhere. Thanks a lot. Hope I didn't write too much. I just wanted to be clear.

They're supposed to be color coded. i.e. brown sensor to the brown harness terminal; blue sensor to the blue harness terminal, etc...

If that doesn't work, then you can maybe post pics of the harness terminal and i can tell you where it should go. Either that or we go by the wire color codes that you see :-)

just to be sure. The big round plugs on the harness. I thought that they were to be connected somewhere. Are those the color coded connectors. do i look for the wires in them and conect accordingly? I will try it tomorrow.
Thanks.

big round plug? I think you mean the DIAGNOSTIC PORT. that stays open and has a cap that screws on. :-)
