It shouldn't 2.4 is a DOHC. You would need an adapter.

The biggest difference is that from what i can tell from photos is the bolt pattern is flipped, that is the diagonal pattern is pointing in at the top on one and pointing out at the top on the other. And the holes are round on sohc and "square" on DOHC. The sohc holes might cover the dohc ports but there is no direct bolt.
If you scroll through you can see the mounting differences...
