    No, that was your answer- use a Z6 or Y8 head.

    New mounts, or make hybrid mounts with your stock ones and the F series ones + welder.

    It's almost that easy- but not quite. Go read up on "mini-me" swaps. There's info in our research section, and that term will get you all kinds of hits all over your favorite search engine too.

    Yup, not too bad in the overall scheme of things.
