Default Engine Swap 03 Coupe V6

I have a 2003 Accord Coupe EX with the 3.0 V6 and 6 speed manual. I had a spark plug come apart in #5 which trashed the cylinder causing low compression and oil burning. The other five cylinders were normal. I decided to replace the engine with a used engine. The car has about 80K and I found a used 2003 V6 engine out of a wreck with about 90K I pulled the engine and trans axle and began the process. I transferred the engine wiring harness, upper intake plenum and motor mount brackets from the old engine to the "new" I installed a new timing belt, tensioner and pulley, water pump, spark plugs and valve cover gaskets to the "new" engine. I installed a new clutch, pressure plate and release bearing in the transaxle. I only have now to couple the trans to the engine and re-install it in the car. Other than the motor mount brackets at the trans end and a sensor of some type on the upper intake plenum I could see no other differences in the two. Is there anything I left out?
