I don't know the exact specifications and engine mount measurements, but i guess anything is possible but whether it's viable is a different matter.
Remember an engine thats designed to be mounted east west and then modifying to run north south will require major changes as it effects the balacing of the engine.
In Australia the Buick 3.8L V6 did just that, Holden turned the engine to run north south for the rear drive commodore and in early models it suffered bad vibration problems and oil seal dramas.
