That should work fine, you may need to switch the front timing cover, but if its a complete 2nd gen engine it should have everything you need. If I were doing it, I would have the P-pump bench flowed while you are in the process of swapping it over. I'd look into 022 dv's, I don't have much experience with those, as we normally just mill the stock ones down, but they are supposed to be a better way to go, although you could just mill the stock ones down. I would also run DDP stage 4 injectors (the 5x.018 or 5x.020 are fine, I just suggest DDP it gives you somewhere to at least start looking), lots of guys run those in high HP trucks. Since you have the engine out, you might as well, have the head work done too, its easier when everything is out on the bench. Stud it, and have the head cut for o-rings as well, and you may want to consider a marine Head Gasket as well. I would play with the timing to get it somewhere where you like it, but probably in the 18-22* range would be my guess. You will also want to grind your plate down, and modify the AFC, as well as run a rack plug if its not a 215pump. Then you'll need the air to burn all that fuel. I think a 35/40 hybrid or an s300 over an ht3b or B2 should do quite well, but there are some capable singles out there as well.
That should be a decent start for you.
