Default HB .26 Powerhouse replacement

Bought a used xtm xt2 and it had a hot bodies .26 powerhouse engine on it with a xtm 2 needle carb. It works fine and has good compression but I would like to replace it since it is old and i cannot find any replacement parts for it.
i have found a used hpi racing f4.6 engine that is missing its carb for 30$, would i be able to put the xtm carb on this and just mount it on the mounts of the old engine?

Only if the neck of the carb is the same on both engines.

But honestly - If the engine runs okay and there isnít any issues with it otherwise, why replace it? Run it until it wonít run and replace with a quality engine.
