The 99 is two wire sensor and the 02 is 3 wire, can I make the 3 wire sensor work if I cut one wire? Or I have to change the sensors from the year type I will used?

I will try to make them fit but the hole where they go in is bigger plus the cam sprocket is different. I will need to see if the crackshaft is different as well.
