A friend of mine did this. It requires a bit more than just an engine swap. If anyone is truly interested in such a mod I can get more info from him and pass it along.

Before the Utah State game I stated something to the effect of "This game will be the test of how the bowl game will go down." I'm hoping I was wrong.
