sorry to disappoint but these are machined to each head, you can't just swap and change them.  At the factory they are torqued down and then line-bored to get a perfect in-line bore through them all. If you swap the caps then the bore will be off centre on the top half and you wear out the cam, head casting and cap.  If you have a head with no caps then it's not much use!
