It is as close to a drop in fit as you will find for the application . Even that being the case, it's FAR from a simple project. The interior of the nacelle will still need to be heavily reworked, the wings will need to be opened to run plenty of wires, as will the interior of the forward fuselage. The cockpit will require extensive modifications both for the pilots and engineer. And, if you are ripping all of that up, you might as well do the fatigue life limited wing panels while you are at it. And, this will have to include work done on spare frames as well.
Not cheap at all.
