Engine swap

My friend and I are trying to swap his engine out of his 2009 GXP
So this is what happened, the engine died on him on the freeway
Got it towed home, then he started looking for a used engine on craigslist
He called me and was happy he found one cheap
When he got it home the engine are different
So he called the guy back and the guy told him that the engine came out of a 2009 g8 but it would fit the G6 with a few mods
Will it work?
Will it be a lot of work getting it to work?
Thanks

The G8 was available with a 3.6 V6 and a two V8's. It was also a rear wheel drive. The 3.6 was the same engine used in 08-09 G6 GXP.

Don't know what mods would need to be made.
