99 2.3 turbo swap

I am getting ready to pull a 3.8 out of my 86 to drop in a 302 so I've been looking for a 2.3 mustang to DD while I'm working on my 86. Then I had an idea. How hard would it be to take a 99 v6, pull the k member, tranny and engine. Put 2.3 with forged internals with a turbo and auto tranny (so not to lose boost betwen gears) in a 99 with a stand alone efi to simplify things a little?

I'd super coupe swap the 99 to save money to fund the 302. I'm not 100%, but wouldn't you need yo fab some stuff to put a 2.3 on a later K? If you did put a 2.3t in it, you'd be the only one i've ever seen though!

It's possible you would need a 94-95 k member and a lot of custom fabrication
