Richard Cutter did the one and only Northstar conversion several years ago. 
You might be able to see photos of it at the www.entermyworld.com site.
  I'm sure he had to make an adapter plate to mate the tranny. Also custom
 engine mounts and exaust. The engine barely  fits front to back in the space 
provided. He had to cut out the back of the rear facia support panel in order
 to do the air intake plumbing. I think the better choice would be to use the 
V6 version sometimes called the baby Northstar. I think stock out of the box 
it is 225 HP and you can probably tweek that up with a power chip.
