Most transplants are possible. Just depends on how much you really want to do it. Look at engine mounts, starter motor location, exhaust set up, where all engine components are located and plugs used for wiring connections. Check where all the bolt locations are that hold gearbox to engine.

That's just some of the main things you should check while both cars still have engines in them.

Well that is providing you have not started to do it already. There are some good crews over in WA that could do it all for you. Just need to find the right one that is close to you.
