Bolt in......likely.....
Plug in......maybe/maybe not....

As OmarAta mentioned, these swaps have been referenced before...no, I don't normally follow them...

From my experience with countless engine swaps in many different vehicles over the years, if the vin digit matches, you should have little trouble with the swap.

You are still within the same generation, and no major engine changes were made for the 2005 model year.

Worst case you might have to change intakes or other hard parts. Best case you change a couple sensors or little to nothing. Just dont throw anything away until the engine is running.

Ultimately it sounds like a safe replacement swap to me
