V8 3.6 Motor Mods

Anyone know whether a 4.2 liter V8 crank and rods (probably pistons, rings,
etc.) could be swapped into a 3.6 motor?  Scott (PDQSHIP) and I thought it
could be done.  I believe the bores are the same.  Anyone done this or have a
good lead?  Or would I be better off getting a shortblock (i.e. lower
end--used, of course) pricewise.  Could I get  by Exrude-honing the Intake
manifold and heads, or would this mod necessitate the 4.2 liter cams as well.
 Well, Santa?

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas (but not unsub*cribing) and Fresh Snow
for the Holidays.  Happy Quattroing!
