    Welcome to the site. Anything is possible with enough time and money. I would research your options as far as mating the engine to the transmission that you intend to use for starters. After that, you have to consider your underhood space, mounting options, fuel system, cooling system and integration with the vehicle systems -- all of which may need swapped to aftermarket given the electronic wizardry in factory gauges and such. Could be quite the undertaking the more "stock" you intend to keep things.
