    It can definitely be done. I'm not sure on exact differences but there are lots of conversion parts and info out there for swaps like this.

    I believe you can use truck pan on your LS2.
    I'm sure you'll run into a few problems when you start doing the swap but I'm sure those things can be figured out with specific questions asked here or researched online.
