No Problem. Keep in mind that you will need to fabricate motor mounts, trans mount and headers. Cooling is an issue too. Not much room for a radiator and fans.
Other then that, it is pretty straight forward.
There are much better choices for a 200 - 250 HP swap these days.
Do some more research and see if maybe an SR20DET, KA24ET or a VG33 might do it for you
I liked my V8 510 but what made up my mind to sell it was after driving a friends VG30 powered 510. Much better swap in a dime. I am currently building a VG33 powered dime. If the 180HP VG33 is not enough, there seems to be plenty of room for a turbo or two.
