Will a 156 2.4 cylinder head fit a 159 2.4?

Hi everyone. I replaced the head gasket in my 159 2.4Ti a short while ago, but it looks like I need a new head. The old head is warped from over-heating and turns out it has 2 tiny cracks in-between valves. Struggling to source one from a 159, so was wondering if a cylinder head from a 156 20v would fit? Looked up the part numbers and the cam carrier is exactly the same, but the part number for the head is different, didn't know if it was completely not do-able because of some fundamental issue or if its just because it has a different thermostat so bolts on differently or something like that. Its a lot easier to find them from 156's, this is the one I'm looking at: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-Romeo...item4ad9cb9493

From what I can see its identical, I'm not spotting anything that looks any different from mine. But then that's why I'm asking the experts!
