Thumbs up Mercedes W140 S class diesel conversion

Can anyone tell me how difficult and expensive it would be to take a petrol engine out from a S class W140 and replace it with a S320 CDi from a 2002 newer model S class?
I have had a S320 CDi 2001 model and recently sold it, had problems with air suspension and radiator ect, but i do love the LWB W140 shape, just wouldn't want the first that goes with it, you can pick up a W40 so cheap, and recon engines are not that expensive, just depends on the cost of fitting it.

Does anyone no if its ever been done, or who might do this kind of thing?

many thanks
