Default Piston slap 940se 242gt build

So I have a b230ft (940se) and a b23e (i think 242gt motor) the 940 has a piston slap and the gt motor is not running can I stick the head of the 940 on the block of the 242? If so what will I need to do to the block for the turbo and head.

Ignore the piston slap and keep driving for another 100k or until the wiring harness rots out.

Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold and head interface, they make a very piston slapping sound.

338k miles on 1988 B230FT. The piston slap is no worse than it was at 175k miles.
