I don't know the answer to the question, but you need to consider the
1) Cruise control is controlled by the Diesel DDE ECU, not a separate
ECU as in the 1.8 and V6.
2) I think that the 1.8 throttle is via a cable where the TD4 is drive
by wire. (not 100% sure about this one)
3) The immobiliser (EWS3) will need recoding for TD4.
4) The instrument packs for petrol and diesel are also different. I
don't think that a petrol variant can be coded for a diesel engine.
The coding codes stored in the Instrument Pack, DDE controller and the
immobiliser should all be changed to reflect the changes in the vehicle
More questions than answers I am afraid.
