Powerwise, I believe you're talking 48 hp vs 52, so there's
about a 10% difference there.
Someone else can be more authoratative, but I believe that the
mounting is similar, for the transmission, but perhaps not for
the engine mounts.
Maintenance is different, without hydraulic lifters.
By my way of thinking, it's a good idea.
