Default 2007 2.2l Vue Head Swap 2003 Ion non EGR

Classic timing chain failure took out the head on my 2007 2.2l. Turns out this model year is hard for me to find replacement heads and engines. My head has all of the valves jammed open, not sure rebuilding is the best route. I found one off of a 2003 Ion, it appears the same except for the Ion has EGR piping on the battery side, this is capped off with a plate. It protrudes 1.75" from the Intake end protrusion (total of 3.5") so I think as is it will clear the battery / fuse box area.

Any reason not to proceed?
