K20a3 swap

So I have done a little bit of research and it's probably not going to produce a 10 second car but whatever....I drive a 2002 Acura rsx base model 2.0 k 20 a3. It is a manual five speed. Something recently went horribly wrong and it's knocking something fierce....long story short I've decided to just replace the engine....I have found a 2006 base model with a k20 a3 in it....it's also a automatic. Will this engine work for me. I have read where I could need k pro or Hondata if I was swapping to a k20 a2 or k24 something like that but is that necessary if I'm swapping straight for another a3? Also will year difference mine being a 2002 manual and the donor car being a 2006 automatic.....any info or input would be great I'm new to the foreign world thanks in advance

I'm about 99% sure that the engines were identical between the two generations except for the O2 sensor... at least that's what I've understood so far. Shouldn't need Kpro if you're swapping the same engine either. A shop should be able to give you a clear answer
