So here is just a random gee whiz question...

The only difference between a Block 50 and 52 off the assembly line was the engine. GE vs. Pratt. (Details are irrelevant to the question)

Supposedly they can swap engines at will. (Yes and a few sub components) The question is: Is there any evidence this has ever been done? Is there any evidence or stories of a Block 50 getting a Pratt engine or vice versa?

No reason for this question other than curiosity.

Block 50, I don't see why anyone would try.

Other blocks for testing, yes. At one point they even tried a J-79 on one A model.

I always see this referenced for F-16 - J79, T/W looks pitiful, surprised how many other fields are NA. Makes sense since as you say it was just one. Always heard USA almost sold them to Israel with J79
