915 / 930 gear box to 996??

Hello folks, new to the world of Porsche and this forum.
Has anyone converted / swapped an early 911 to a 996 transmission?
I have a 73 911 (wide body/ slant nose conversion) with a 930 gearbox matted to a SBC that I plan to convert to a 996 gearbox and an LS3 motor. I know that is blasphemous to most Porsche guys and I apologize if you already threw up in your lap. I'm an old school hot rod guy that loves the concept. Looking for any advice on the swap, pics or anything else that may help.
Thank you in advance,

The 996/997 box is completely different to the g50/930 style boxes. YES, it can be done and GBox has done the sbc/g96/g97. The GT boxes are very similar and may even use the same clutch pack if you have a lot invested. They are better geared for a powerful SBC but do cost more for entry. The Turbo box can be used as 2wd with great success.
