Stick with your models year range (generation) and if it's a 2 Wheel or All Wheel Drive. This insures your transmission bolts up correctly and your wiring harness is not left with any open connections. The 6th # in your VIN# needs to match the donor vehicles 6th # (within your generation), is another thing you can check besides the number stamped on the block.

It's extra work. I wouldn't. There are plenty of exact match engines out there.
