Default 2.2 OHV Swap For 2.2 Ecotec...

I was wondering if a 2004 cavalier ecotec engine would fit in my 2002 cavalier with some to no problem. Any help?

The 2002 Cavalier that I have is a 2200 SFI OHV. Either way, I am ready to swap this P.O.S engine for a new one. Thanks for the help, and reassurance.

Actually 2002 was the first year that the Cavalier got the Ecotec motor. It became standard in 2003 but a few of the Cav's got the motor the year before that. I don't know much about changing it up but I imagine it's some work. I'm pretty sure the Eco is a bit bigger of an engine than the OHV anyways.
