I have been looking at exactly this right now and from what I have found, the answer is yes. I am still trying to figure out what oil ports need to be blocked. I believe a cam sensor also needs to be added to the head. This is a part that can be reused off your other motor, and apparently a bracket is available for the mounting.. you just need to drill and tap a hole to secure it to the motor
