I have, well, an 03 but the same thing.  Only difference is the front mount.  See my thread below for details.

EDIT:  Sorry misread that.  06 engine can go in but you have to mod the front mount plates.  Not sure what effect that would have on the frame stiffness or if you'd notice it.  

Your title looks like 02 into a 06 frame but your text is 06 to 02 so not 100% what you're looking to do but, either way, it can be done.  I've posted pics for both.

Remove 10mm on each side of the front mounting brackets as shown and, yes, the 02 head will bolt right up.
