I am looking my self as I type this. I have a 2001 vg33e bad motor as well. Bad heads. I did some research and the bone yards up here in mass are looking at $750 for a used motor w/88,000 miles. I know the manufactors date on the door jam is key to an easy swap. My 01 has a manufactors date of 10/00 . Good luck

I know the engines differ alot, however I believe the block is the same. I know the intake will need to be swapped as well as the exhaust manifolds, etc. I have researched part#s and they seem to be the same . Hopefully some one will fill us in on the matter.
