Does Block year matter?

I am doing the 2.5 into the 2.0 swap. I am keeping the 2.0 heads, so it is not a full swap. Does it matter what year the 2.5 Sti block is from? I am not sure if a 05 Sti block will bolt right up to an 02 tranny. I would hate to buy more parts and be stuck. thanks.....

Jave is more helpful than not
When I did my hybrid build I had to replace a cam. I ordered a Passenger side exhaust cam for a 04 WRX. After getting 2 parts that were wrong the dealership ran my VIN and discovered that I had 03 cams/heads on my 04 WRX. Long story short 03 heads do work on a 04-05 STi short block.
