I am looking to replace a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 3.8L…

Customer Question
I am looking to replace...
I am looking to replace a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 3.8L engine with a remanufactured engine. Mine mysteriously ran out of oil and now has a rod knock. I am finding 3 styles available, DDK3, DDK37 and DDE1. All seem to be a direct fit, but I am not sure which one to buy. My VIN # is 2D4GP44L87R205025.There is a valve cover tag with bar codes and numbers, TPTE1334604656 P04666619AA 38RS 619 AA. If that helps. My concern is if I buy a long block of a different ID, then my brackets, accessories or electronics may be out of sync. On the other hand,I don't know if one of these is simply better than the other.
