A visual inspection will get you started, pay attention to the location of sensors and wiring.
Also, the 8'th vin digit (almost positive it's the 8'th) is the engine code.
Popular engine codes are letters like c, s, w, and z
If they're the same then the motor is at least the same version.

If the vin is different you'll have issues with the car wiring (at least)
