1985 cherokee chief gm 4.3l

Okay guys the other day i bought a 1985 cherokee chief and didnt know ****ty the 2.8l was in these now im kind of regretting buying it, although it is a 2 door 5 speed. but this summer when i start bringing in some money i was thinking about dropping in the gm 4.3l vortec in, since i have always had great experience with those motors, but is it going to work? and how much fabbing and how much money will i be dropping into this $700 jeep? i know i will have to get the painless wiring and im not sure if that comes with the computer you need for the injection system along with motor mounts and a ax15 with adapters and an np231, i kind of figure its going to be about a good 2000-3000 dollar job? does that sound right?

Let me know if anyone has done this or if it will even work!
