Default Throttle body

Good afternoon.

I have to replace the throttle body on my '95 5.2lt 318. The mechanic who put it in bolted it to tight and cracked it @ 3 of the 4 bolts and it no longer makes a seal. Not a big deal. However, I thought I'd take this time to upgrade it to a larger bore throttle body. When I started looking I found out that throttle bodies for the '95 are discontinued (best place to look it the wrecker). They still make them for the '99.

Why will the "99 throttle body not fit or work with my '95 2.5lt 318? Are they not the same engins requiring the same O2 levels?
