It's possible. Not easy nor cheap.

Yep. There is a plug and play harness out there for this. With top of the line wiring and ecu but your looking at a lot of money for that.

Forget the S65B40...throw in a S85B50

Apex Speed Technology and Pectel make a complete stand-alone ECU and wiring harness for either swap.

Why not just go HPF stage 3 turbo? Definitely doable if you want to swap it tho.

it would be very expensive, you would need to pretty much replace many different parts and fabricate a lot as well. Here is a picture of a car that is in our class for NASA, after asking I believe his build total was around 50k w/o the car
