Default 2011 FB25 engine replacement

Hello all.
I have a 2011 Forester with FB25 engine that was run into the ground due to no oil. I love my kids, really I do. I bought a replacement engine from JDM, but when I got it home I realized it was a later model year because the front cover does not have the correct mounting brackets for the power steering pump or second idler pulley. My research tells me that they went to electric power steering in 2014. So my question is can I swap out the front cover and wiring harness from the old motor and go forward with the swap? Are there any other differences that I need to deal with. This newer motor was mated to a CVT trans so I know I'll have to use my old intake as well.
Thanks in advance for any advise. I'm an experienced mechanic, but this is my first subbie.
