Default Magnum .15 Diesel ?

I saw a Magnum .15 r/c the other day and I was intrigued. Twin needle carb, ball bearing, only 6.5oz, $45.00 and "tight" ABC. I called Davis and he said "NO". The bore on this engine is 15mm. The bore on my FOX .15 is .590" (14.986mm by my calculations). Would the FOX diesel head fit? Any body put a homemade head on a Magnum .15. My FOX .15 is a great Diesel but it is 7.8oz and $65.00.

You can get a head for the Thunder Tiger .15, it is very similar to the Magnum, but DD makes a head for it. I have one, just broke it in on glow and put the DD head on it, but haven't had a chance to run it since.
