You cannot use it without changing a few things and even then it might not work or be advisable.
The camshaft towers are different, so you need to change them too.
The valve stem seals are longer on the old engine, you need to change them too.
The rocker arms go together with a camshaft. The new harder rocker arms don't work with the old valve adjusting nut, so that needs to be changed too.
