lml to replace van lgh?

head gaskets going on my 2012 chevy express van. thing has 340,000km on it.
cant justify doing head gaskets 8g + 6g for injectors + couple grand for heads if they need rebuilding.
not sure about 24 thousand for a new engine either.
sweet deal on a low km lml complete engine i found for 6000$. 40k kms on it.2015 engine.
should mention the lgh is already deleted and tuned in the van.
would there be a issue or has any one ever swapped an lml into a van?
thanks for any help.

They are the same engine. Set them side by side and swap over the parts that are different and slap it in and go. There will be a couple of parts different due to fitment into a van chassis.
