5.2 to 5.9 swap

has anybody done this yet? I know the motor itself will fit as its the same block as the 5.2 but will everything else "bolt up"? Could it be as easy as finding a 5.9 and its computer and "drop it in"?

check the recommended fuel psi at the fuel rail for the 5.2 compared to the 5.9, a fuel booster pump may be in order.
