Main thing is the wiring which is the problem for everyone doing swaps so what you need to do is get a motor with harness and ECU then convert the Onto the 165 one. Second would be motor mounts as well cause the st215 won't work on the 165 chassis

Yes it is possible. You will need to pickup a ST205 trans (recommended) or use your existing ST165 transmission. The block itself will bolt on as well as the trans with all the existing mounts. Since the factory ST215 intercooler is ATA, you will need to either cut the hood or change to a FMIC. I also recommend Wiregapinc.com to do the wiring for you if you don't want to do that part.
