how to wire up a 97 manual engine to a 98 auto shell?

ok i've figured out my problem when trying to do this coversion and that is i bought a 98 shell that was orginally an auto coverted to a manual. i've never done the conversion before and wanted to know if anyone knew how to wire up the engine harness. i have an engine from a 97 manual car thats complete with the engine harness.

i have one 8 pin female plug that needs to be connected from the engine harness and i have two 14 pin connectors (one female and one male) from the chassis that goes to the ECU. the engine is completly mounted in the car but i wont even get a crank when i tried to start it. after looking at the electrical manual for the car, the 8 pin connector is for a manual car and the 14 pin connector is for an auto car. i need help finding a way to connect them together. if any one has done this swap before please let me know how to solve this problem. i also have pics of the plugs if that helps?
