"just for the look huu?", then you do not really care, is it possible? YES, with the right amount of money its always possible, it may cost several thousand of bills, but yes, it can be done. Worth or smart? not at all, what a waste...... If you want a real car, then get a real car.

If you want to see the advantages of different engines, you can use a car performance simulator[1] to virtually swap engines and compare.

Hi Henry

in this case it is not just about looks it is about a whole engine change as the head will never fit even it it has all the holes in the right places it is never going to work right as you need the block as well as the head.
