Is there any difference between '01 and '03 engine?

what you need is a Hollander book that tells you what the difference is in the engines there may be just little diff and it will tell you what you can swap .
and most salvage yard have these books and dont charge to look it up for you.
and dont let someone guess and say yes and then you have to go back and change so importaint part.
