The engines are fairly identical, but the manufacturer made a few upgrades on the newer model engine. You should have swapped all of the fuel system parts and electronics from the old engine to the new one. The intake manifold, oil pan, injector rail, and everything and any parts that broke should be replaced with new parts made for the 2002 model so they match the vehicle. If you need help with this, consider hiring an experienced technician, like one from YourMechanic, who's willing to come out and inspect what's going on with the broken and mixed parts and offer a more personal solution.
