you can but its not really that wise you would also want the trans and everything back for safety so you dont risk breaking anything back there its better just to do the swap

Idk what the junkyards or dismantlers are like where you are but check them and check ebay craigslist and any forums you never know what you can get also if you got a place that imports motors then check there
