no. not really.

the series one block is different from the series two block. there is one person adapting the s2 top end onto a tall deck block, but i cannot remember who it was or what became of it.

No. The Series 1 and Series 2 are completely incompatible in nearly every part. Heads will not swap, intakes will not swap.

Get on that swap to the correct motor. I'd imagine your fueling and shift points are all screwed up.
