Default What harness for M52 swap from Z3

So the junkyard M52 I got is from a Z3 (production 8-14-98) but the engine electrical harness was chopped (boo).
Iím trying to figure out the best harness option for putting this engine into my ti. The Z3 OEM harness is a different part # than 328.
Does anyone know what the difference in harnesses is? My gut instinct is to get a Z3 harness and make it work in my chassis.
Any suggestions?

I think I figured it out. According to J!M, sounds like the 328 harness is a better option. I'm heading in this direction unless I hear otherwise.

Yes 328 is cleaner. The Alternator on Z3 will be different, best to get an M3 alt and the cooling gear to go to it.
