Gday, welcome,

Hmm, interesting choice of an engine, I have personally never heard of such conversion and can only speculate following:

Being a Jag motor I can only imagine the astronomical costs of everything for it and also given they're such niche vehicle the parts availability might be a problem.

Since no one has probably contemplated such conversion there will be zero aftermarket parts available for it too so everything would have to be custom fabbbed for it....

The reason why GM  LS series engine conversion are so popular is because the parts are plentiful and there are  number of vendors who supply ready to bolt on adapters, brackets and what have you which makes the whole project much more manageable plus so many people have done it that help/advice is freely available.
