Ummmmm. I doubt a DOHC head will fit on a SOHC.

DITO. any CONVERSION kit to make everything line up is extra space between the head and block meaning your compresion goes to hell! your belts need to be longer. well in short total crap! keep a SOHC on a sohc motor. if you want a DOHC then buy a whole swap! ( and yes you need the tranny as well)
