Default anyone familiar with gm 2.3s?

My buddy has a '97 grand am. He wants to do some mods, but there really isn't that much out there to boost performance. He'* wondering if he'd be able to swap on a W41 head? would it be a direct bolt up, and would it work?

yeah, I think the 2.3s and the quad fours are one and the same. I've just been working on mustangs for waaay too long
