Differences between TDi and TSi car shells/wiring?

So I was thinking about doing an engine conversion on a Mk6, using an engine from a mk4/5 and I was looking at Donor vehicles that might do the job, but it seems in the UK Diesel were the more popular choice of engine during the Mk6 era, or at least they have been work horses, high mileage but importantly cheap!

I was going to look for a TSi 1.4 with a blown engine as cam chain issues are common, but seems none are really about, but the high mileage diesels are plentiful.

so I wondered between the TDi and the TSi, what the actual car differences are? Obviously the cluster is different, theres a fuel filter mount in the engine bay, the wiring will be slightly different in the engine bay/ECU, but mechanically/body are there may differences?
