The two cars are not currently available for a side by side comparison.

What would happen if I did a straight swap without changing the head as suggested?

Would it be easier/cheaper to switch the pcm out rather than putting the 2.3 manifold on the 2.0? I have the entire 2006 2.0 at my disposal. The damage didn't affect the engine at all.
You could try it right now by switching the pcm's & seeing if they run. I don't think its going to work w/ the imtv that the 23 has. I know you'll have your car down, but to speed it up, pull the 23 out & remove the head, clean it up for the 20 motor w/ intake manifold.
