I just looked on RockAuto and a long block for the 2005 Frontier as well as the 2016 Frontier is exactly the same item. I think the V6 hasn't changed between 2005-2016 but wait for others to chime in. They may have updated internal components (timing chain guides.......)but I think the engine overall is still the same.

Thank you!...Just wanted to make sure in case sensors/plugs or something weird has changed. Interestingly the 2005-2010's are more expensive than the newer engines with less miles?...go figure but if I can save a couple hundred bucks for less miles why not...

Be careful on what you buy cause they've totaled a whole $hitload down in the southern states recently due to the weather we've all had ***Get something in writing especially in your buying in southern states. But if you can find one and since you can take it from TX check on Craigslist they're popping up all the time around 2k an this was before the weather depending on mileage how complete ect...
You can also check into copart if you can take the whole thing? https://www.copart.com/vehicleFinder/

Pretty much with differences it was only updates to creature comfort acc. facelifts inc. headlight grill wheels and to streamline what sold what didn't things like that

Know they changed the radiator in 11 because of manufacturing problem it leaked @ a connection in radiator on the transmission cooler in some 4.0l autos whoopee they extended warranty
and the oil filter in 09 saying it didn't need a anti drain back valve

My buddy and I have done several engine swaps using a harbor freight hydraulic engine hoist. It's cheap but it works. Just don't get below a suspended load of course
