UMMM.........Just get the proper ones not worth the risk. I would bet your changing your gaskets again as soon as you warm the car up the first time.

Agreed, take the hit of waiting for the correct ones.

When I put EJ22 heads on my EJ25 block, the coolant passages didnt line up too well either. I didnt modify them any way shape or form. I wasnt nice to that motor, I drove the car with fun in mind. Never overheated at all. I was apprehensive at first, but it all worked out.
