Yes, according to Motorman, you can. As long as you use back the MT-12 con rod (long version) with the new S5 sleeve and piston on the MT-12 engine. The MT-12 is a long rod type while the S5 is a short rod type engine.

I don't have experience doing this but generally, short rod engines have higher revs while the long rod type are better on the lower end.
