Nah You can't, because system in 4.3 is not same like system 4.2 so You can't flash 4.2 Kernel in 4.3 ROM

Android 4.3 update got many changes and the kernel is incompatible, flashing 4.2 kernel while running 4.3 update result in your phone showing Xperia logo then freezing a cyan screen. Any specific reason of wanting 4.2 kernel with 4.3 update? Because this doesn't make any sense at all...

I'm guessing cause there's no custom kernels for 4.3...
