1995 yj engine in 1997 tj???need help asap

My buddy and i just bought a 1997 tj, the guy said he overheated and blew the head gasket, i replaced the gasket re seated the valves and put all new top end gaskets on (like i should do) and all torque specs were exact, still very low compression... this is beyond the point... i have a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder liked up for $300 but my jeep is a 1997 2.5 4 cylinder. WILL THIS WORK FOR A SWAP??? i have heard from several that it will be fine i know that obd2 emissions started in 1996 but is there a difference in the engines or can i just throw the intake manifold and accessories from my '97 onto the '95 engine and be good to go
