You Might be able to (not sure about the early to late 116 to 117 issues..) but you'll have far smaller valves for sure which will hurt thing quite a bit.

I think I have a set of 380 heads sitting around and I know I have some 560 short blocks..I'll need to see if they'll fit. One could see about fitting the 560 valves to the 380 head..
I'll also need to CC each head or try and find the info in the WIS as anything much past 10.5 maybe 11 to 1 and we'll have octane requirement issues.
Another thought is if the compression is Really high we can change the cam profile to bleed some of that off... Always something to think about!
