Do they even make adapters for this type of swap? I would call Novak and AA before even thinking about doing this. With that said, lets see pics of this said motor

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

I see doing an rb25det a bit more feasible. But this would be sick. A rb25det with a small turbo would be pretty nasty in a jeep

Work harder, thousands of people on welfare are counting on you.

IF this is real....
Adapter from the engine to a more jeep friendly tranny is no big deal. Just made one myself for a LSx to a ZF4HP24 transmission. Band saw, Sharpie, tape measure and a drill press and bits were the only tools used.

There should be folks here now with programmers/software for the GTR ECM. If that's the case, just make it standalone by removing all the security, emission, transmission, axles, etc, junk out of the ecm.
I have a feeling that this would be one of those "my loss is your gain" for sale threads though, if the OP went through with it. It takes a LOT of patience, research, asking of questions, and realizing that you indeed do not know everything!
If the OP is serious, riddle me this Batman...
Are there places here in the USA with the software to program the engine ecm?
What transmission and axles would you run?
Can you rework the wiring harness yourself?
Measured the motor yet?
Without knowing the answers to these very basic questions, no need to discuss it further IMHO.
