Looking at the illustrations (again, no specific numbers provided), they appear slightly different but not so much that I would be concerned about it. With the new engines, one should expect a difference. The 737 is not the first, nor will be the last, airframe that has been re-engined, and changes to accommodate the new powerplants are inevitable. As long as one keeps the aircraft within its authorized c.g. limits, then there really isn't a problem.
