Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.You CAN use the earlier version of the motor but you will have to use all of the accessories and sensors and such from your current motor. Also you will need to swap the 08 crank and cam gears to the earlier engine (this is a slightly big chore but should be doable if you are capable of swapping an engine). Otherwise its pretty much a direct fit. Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you. Thanks
