: 2002 engine into 97 Deville?

Is there a reason I can't put a 2002 Northstar engine, even a shortblock, into a 1997 Deville?

The same basic engine. Don't pull the heads, only change the minimum number of parts.

There are a few differences that you may want to look at first.
I know the intake setup and the water crossover is different, however, if you can make that work, it should be basically the same.
I was told by a caddy tech that a 2002 N* would not work in my '95 Aurora, due to mounting/fitting issues.
Someone correct me if I am mistaken, by all means.
