Has any one fitted the latest 6 speed gear box to a TD5 or know if it's possible?

I suppose if you have enough money, anything's possible.
Question is, why?

There is a company who've put a TDV6 from a Disco3 into a Disco1, it fitted quite well since that engine is smaller than the V8 it replaced.
Fitting a different gearbox is usually harder, since it is usually a different length, so chassis mounts changed, the engine might have to move, propshafts possibly custom made, gearbox tunnel may have to be fabricated etc.

Motor and diesel do a kit but by the time you pay for this and the gearbox plus labour/extras you'll be looking at a few grand.

Why do you fancy this conversion? I have been considering it myself but the cost is hard to justify?
