I guess so. Apart from alloy type theres no HUGE difference to them..

Cams of course..

I would try it..

If you are talking about fitting a turbo head to a non turbo engine then yes it will work, the cams are different but will run, it is not advisable to fit a Na head to a turbo though, later oval port Na heads can be used but I am informed they dont last very long.
