Yes, but the valve & combustion chambers are much smaller & maybe the intake & exhaust ports too. Nothing to gain by this only a little more compression & less hp. Alternative, have a cylindar head shop re-do them (valves, guides, valve springs,resurface) but it's going to be expensive. Cheaper to find & use 350 heads.

Don't do it. It raises compression and it will spark knock like hell if you don't run high octane and adjust for it properly.
