as opposed to the amount of work adapting a US trans to an aussie block? remember that you will need either an aussie bell housing, or an adaptor plate. as for adapting the crossflow head on the US block, check this link out;

you will find the procedure much easier than you realize. the problem jack had was with distributor clearance, but only because he was using a US 200 block rather than a 250 block which would have given him and extra 1.5"
as for the amount of work offsetting the shipping costs, i rather doubt it. remember that there is a large difference in cost between shipping a 500lb engine as opposed to shipping a 100lb cylinder head.
