175 kit, what cylinder head?

I'm upgrading an Italian 125 engine with a sil 175 steel barrel, can I bolt on a 150 head on it without modification or must I absolutely have a 175 head for it to function properly. 175 heads aren't as easily got and I have a few 150's knocking about. Any thoughts would be appreciated
