Question Aurora 4.0 swap to 3800 series 2?

I have a 1998 Olds Aurora with a bad engine. I also have a 1997 Olds 88 that is wrecked but only has 55,000 miles on the 3800 series 2 and transmission. Does anyone know if it is possible (within reason) to put the 3800 in the aurora?

I would see that as an upgrade.

Lots of PCM issues to adapt.

If you swapped the engine, transmission, pcm, wiring harness, UBEC and all it should work no problem.
