No, they are very different engines so the mounts will not line up. But if you really want to I am sure you can find a way for it to work.

Why do you ask?

I some how read engine COVER - my mistake, sorry. I'm sure they can be swapped. I would not be able to tell you what is involved and how easy or hard it would be though.

Sure you just will need EVERYTHING to go with it, but it'll all bolt right in.

Most places you get a motor from will not be able to provide all the extra small stuff you need. Just an engine and harness..

I would buy a totaled gs400 so you have a full doner to work with. It will be by far the easiest way to get everything you need.

Then you can still part out some leftover parts from it, and recycle the shell for a few bucks when your done..
