The LS2 is an HSV only engine and requires a different ECU (E40 I think) and reluctor wheel, not to mention the HSV VATTS (security). You will end up spending more than the 4.5k on extra bits needed to make it run.
From there you can go a Holden gen4 6lt in L76, L77 or L98 guise. Same thing with computers and wiring though, and displacement on demand delete if required.
This is all a bit hazy to me now, hopefully someone with a great deal more knowledge than I will chime in.
