Assuming you have the 2.2L for both? Should all line up, but you may need to swap over some of the modules/harnesses as well. The '05 should be the 2.2 ecotec, which I believe has a higher horsepower rating than the '00 2.2. I don;t think it's a big enough difference to affect gear ratios but I would still keep the engine/trans mated and swap over as a unit. The real challenge is the computer/ecu and harness mating between different model years.
