Engine swap 2011 ram 2500

Looking to swap engine out of my 2011 2500 with an engine out of 2013 wondering what the differences are between the two?

The Ram 2500 had a different engine in some years. So need to figure out if mds and vvt factor into the swap.

11 and 13 are interchangeable they both should have vvt and mds or 1 may not have mds but that's not even an issue

Now I'm questioning myself. I don't really know what mds or vvt stand for?

Scratch that I googled it and I'm pretty sure that because it's a 2500 it doesn't have mds but more than likely it has vvt

So engine swap was a success. Few minor differences but easy enough to swap out. The motor mounts are completely different, the electronic throttle control female electric connector, and the crankshaft position sensor, and the oil filter remote locator, are the only items I had to switch around. Everything else went about as smooth as swapping an engine on your back could've gone.
