Default Replacing a SOHC ej25 automatic versus manual trans?

Hi all, long story short, I've replaced an engine in a 2000 legacy sedan that has an automatic transmission with a 2000 2.5 sohc engine from an manual transmission car.
Swapped over everything including complete intake manifold and all sensors, but now I've got a couple of codes. Camshaft and crankshaft sensor codes and it won't start. Also, It's pretty much pissing gas out the tail pipe (no joke!)

After some looking, I found the left hand side cam pulley has different pickup notches for the sensor. I'm guessing the crankshaft pulley is different too as I'm getting both of these codes.

So after all that, is this just as simple as swapping over the pulleys and being done with it or am I in for a surprise something like the pulleys won't fit the other cams?

I didn't want to take it out of time, so thought I would post here first.

Also, the original engine is a EJ251 with auto trans
Replacement engine is a Ej252 with manual trans

Yep, they fit great! Swapped everything over and yes, first crank of the key and she fired right up. Now, I just have to change the engine oil and it smells like a gas station.
