Hello, to do that swap the only possibility would be
that the cam and crankshaft tone wheels would need swapped, the crankshaft one may or may bot
require that the entire crankshaft be swapped, mopar started changing engine computers from year to
year so it's difficult to tell you whether or not the 2005 would drop in and run or not. The only thing I can suggest would be to put it in if that's what your doing and see if it runs if it does then you want need to swap anything if
it doesn't then you'll need to swap the items I mentioned
