That will be a pretty expensive and in depth change. It probably is not going to be worth the investment.

It's not that bad, lots of info on the web. You handy with a torch and welder? It is labour intensive though.

Powerblock recently did this on a full size blazer - there are companies out there that specialize in providing the hardware needed for this swap. Here is one episode (see link below for free), I bet if you search around more you can find episode 1 where they actually do the swap - if not, you can always buy the episodes from SpikeTV
