Default 07 Ion 2 - engine compatibility 2.2 California / Federal

I have a 2007 Ion 2, 2.2 engine, California NU6 with hole in exhaust manifold, Air valve etc. Looking to get replacement engine. Found one, but it is NOT California. Can I use that other engine, just use my ex manifold and intake manifold? Basically use it as a short block? or is the head and cam sensors, etc different with California vs Federal. I have read and read and read but cannot pinpoint for sure. I am pretty sure, just want to make sure before I buy the new engine. ANy input would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I'm inclined to believe all 2.2L ecotec engines are the same engine block internals with ancillary parts needed to separate federal from California engines. The ecm/pcm may have a different tune to accommodate air injection from non air injection. You might find others with more expertise in other Ion forums as well as other GM forums/models using the same ecotec engine with the same questions asked here.

If you cannot find an answer then perhaps calling/writing/emailing GM headquarters may result in someone knowledgeable enough to give you info. There's always local GM service centers to ask.
