The 600 and 800 use the same airbox and the same computer, but you will need to get the pipe for the 600 if you switch. Dimensionally, they are pretty close to the same size on the bottom end and use the same mounting system. Like KC said, finding a wrecked 600 would be the best bet. There are a few cooling hose differences, so you should look closely at that to see what the differences are.

A different 600 engine will be pretty spendy, you may be better off rebuilding the 800, especially if you can do the work. It's not difficult tearing one of those engines down, you may need a few specialized tools but if you have any mechanical skill, it's definitely do-able and will save you the labor costs... like Face said, that can double the cost...
