Does anyone know if it is possible, with relative ease to fit the 24 valve cylinder head on this engine.

Beyond dropping it on the block, I think the chains are different (double row), exhaust, induction, wiring, different front cover, different crank gear, different ignition system, and so on. But, I'm no expert here. Having seen both engines, they sure look a lot different. What are you thinking about trying to accomplish beyond the obvious performance boost. (not sure the increase is worth all the trouble and $$$). MAybe Steve or Donnie can help..

Well, I would like to increase the performance another option I thought of was to fit a crank driven supercharger but have no idea where to find such an item. I believe this is probably the easiest option without major engine modifications!
