That all depends on if you want to do it. Personally, i think it would be a neat swap and if i were in your shoes, i would do it. Some will probably say its not worth it, but others will. Half a dozen of one, six of another. I am all about doing swaps, but just do what "you" want. You would be one of very few that has done it.

is it all pretty much just plug-n-play? If so, I dont really see what would be too hard doing it, and it would be somewhat of a sleeper. Do the swap, put your foci on a diet and suprise some people

what extra things would he need? Assuming he's got the ECU, wiring harness, engine, and tranny? Are the motor mounts, half axles, shift linkage etc different?

If it was me I would get the whole subframe with everything still attached... it would make the swap ALOT easier..... plus you would get the bigger SVT brakes and front suspension as well.
