It apparently was cool, before the VG30. Since, it's just a waste of a 510 shell that has to be cut to fit the half-again as long engine. Then think of the half-again as much weight over the front axle.

Search through some of the old issues of 5'n'Dime and FTA, there were a number of L28 cars. No such thing as an L28DET, though.

KA-E or DE as much power, or SR more power, all weigh less, fit, newer technology efi and well documented. VG30i or VG30E as much power, gobs of torque at low speed. Fits but technically difficult thus impressive. Now that's cool.

Example of the fitment issue (see also: trans shifter two more cylinders rearwards):
