2002 3.2 Boxster engine in a 2001 Boxster?

Hi everyone, I have a question that seems to be a bit of a grey area. I have a 2001 Boxster S 3.2, it am going to swap the engine out due to a failure. I know that 2000-2001 are direct replacements. I have found a deal on a 2002 engine, would that engine be plug and play as well? I know 2003 and up you have to change programing and a few things. Nobody seems to know about 2002. Any help would be appreciated.

2002 is a 5 chain engine like the 2000 and 2001. They use the same motronics. I don't see a problem.
