Find 10 top values between two generic lists

I have two generic lists, with identical object T.
Code is like the primary key in the list.
List<T> listT1
List<T> listT2

T has the following fields
Code
Price
RetailPrice
SuggestedPrice


I need to find the top 10 codes which have the highest absolute Price difference between the two lists

Example
Code      list1   list2       difference
ABC        1000   2000   1000
LMN        500    50       450

Here's one approach:

List<T> listT1 = new List<T>()
{
    new T() { Code = "ABC", Price = 1000 },
    new T() { Code = "LMN", Price = 500 },
};

List<T> listT2 = new List<T>()
{
    new T() { Code = "ABC", Price = 2000 },
    new T() { Code = "LMN", Price = 50 },
};

var query = from item1 in listT1
            join item2 in listT2 on item1.Code equals item2.Code
            select new
            {
                Code = item1.Code,
                list1 = item1.Price,
                list2 = item2.Price,
                difference = Math.Abs(item1.Price - item2.Price),
            };
            
var result = query.OrderByDescending(item => item.difference)
                  .Take(10);
