I wish you can do it with the minimum of problems. Keep us informed and documented with pictures . A front end picture of both , that is, as we see the engines from the accessory side, alternator, a/c, p/s, would be great.
Just to start with, take a picture of the SC3800 from the front. I think the relocation of alternator or p/s pump would be the main problem.

I think it is way down towards the firewall with the SC.

Here is the original engine from TomVanHooft in Netherland www.avigex.ca/xport/IMG_2042s.jpg He was working to install a series 2 3800 (no compressor) in its place.

It can be done... Only problem is where the Throttle body will sit in relation to the Master cylinder...

No matter how you look at it, this will require some custom wiring...
