TPS replacement 2000 SE Zetec (Problem)

I found something strange with my 2000 Focus SE Zetec. The check engine light was on and was coming up with P0122 And P1120. I ordered a TPS from the auto parts store for a 2000 Focus w/ Zetec engine and auto transmission. The part came in and I started to take everything apart and come to find out that the sensors were not the same. I brought the original part into the store along with my VIN number. The only TPS that matches my car is for a manual transmission. The original part number starts with an X does this mean something different? I am not sure if anyone else has came across this but I thought it might help if anyone ever has any troubles. New part is on its way and will see if that solves my issue.

Just to add something here, you know you have to line the TPS up on the throttle plate shaft, then turn it to line the screw holes up. It should push in flush with the TB without forcing. If you have to force it, then the shaft is not lined up. Sorry to be so rudimentary, but we've had several FF's install the TPS by lining the screw holes up. It can ruin the TPS if you do that.
Be eclectic.
