i have just acquired a cheap sp23 3 because it was only running on.. 3.. cylinders. upon removing the motor i see that a rod has escaped from the engine. anyway the only l3 engines i can find locally are from atenzas, which appear to have different heads? from what i've seen, the head gaskets between both engines have the same part number. so assuming the head on my engine is still good, does that mean i can just throw the head onto a l3-de block and be good to go?

tl;dr, are all L3 blocks the same?

sweet cheers for that. I have looked into the 2.5 swap but sadly they're not readily available where i am so it's not a feasable swap for me
