Some of the front wheel drive 3.8 liters had a balance shaft in them. Other than that, I think they are the same. One way to find out, if there is a particular part that you are trying to swap, is call the dealer parts dept and give them the year and model of both engines, and see if the part number is the same for the part(s) you want to swap.

On a front wheel drive it is under the engine mount on the front of the engine. On a rear wheel drive it is on the driver side rear of the engine.

Either a transverse engine for front wheel drive cars (and the occasional rear engine, rear wheel drive car), or a longitudinal engine for front/mid-engine, rear wheel drive cars.

The Sportage is a front engine, front wheel drive car, with a four wheel drive option (but that still uses the front wheel drive transaxle, and runs the transfer case off of that).
