BA Turbo 6 into '70 XW ute

Gday everybody,
Just wondering if anyone has converted an XR-XY Falcon yet with a turbo 6 from a BA? I've already done running gear from a wreck BA which fitted fine and i have the engine and box quoted from the wreckers, but i just want to know how difficult of a job it will be? I know the anciliaires will be hard (ECU, looms etc) but if it is possible i will do it. Can anyone help me out with any information they know on this type of conversion. I know about fly-by-wire aswell and have been told i can escape that by using an XF throttle body. Thanks guys, hopefully bid june-july i should be fryin tyres. By the way if anyone wants a mild 302 (straight gas from gas research, cam, manifold, extractors, 2" exhaust) let me know thanks guys

It would be a highly uncommon project i think.
good luck finding info.
