how similar are the 2.8/2.9/4.0 Cologne v6

ok first i did search, but there's too much to search for. so if someone has already came up with this thread, i'm sorry... and can you point me to that thread...

ok i know the 2.8, 2.9, and the 4.0 ohv v6 are all the same family. the Cologne v6. but what i need to know is what can bolt up to what?

can the 2.8 carb intake bolt up to the heads of the 4.0 or the improved heads of the 2.9?

can the 4.0 heads bolt up to the 2.8 or 2.9 block?

can the 4.0 ohv and the SOHC intakes be swapped?

what i'm trying to do is to build a High Performance CARBURETED Cologne V6...
no EFI. sorry i know that disappoints many ppl. lol but i like my carbs.....

My truck is a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.3l 4cyl.
I got a 75 Chevy Nove 6cyl too. it is my daily driver.
