they should both have the same EGR set up, don't compare it to the earlier Phase I EJ25's like the 1998 you're talking about.
of course you should check first, have you looked to see if they have EGR?
if you install an EGR engine into a non-EGR car that's fine, just block it off.
if you install a non-EGR engine into an originally EGR equipped vehicle then you're likely hosing yourself if check engine lights mean anything in your state. if you can ignore it then you're golden (that's what i did).

So you think just plug the intake manifold where the EGR attached and leave the plug dangle? Leave the 03 harness and manifold?
Is there any advantage to swapping the harness and intake manifold? I dont want check lights on.

bolt your 2000 intake manifold on top of the 2003. you'll need two new intake manifold gaskets. that retains the exact same sensors of your vehicle so no way for the ECU to get confused or not like anything.
then you'll need to block the hole in the 2003 engine. make a block off plate and seal it with sealant. I went to ACE hardware, bought a flat piece of stainless steel and cut out a piece to fit. drilled two holes to bolt it in place and applied sealant around the edges.
