Dropping a northstar in there should be fairly easy

Agreed, so long as it is a Northstar from a FWD configuration vehicle and not from the XLR. I remember we had to change the bellhousing on the Northstar to match up with the 4L60/4L80-E transmission bolt pattern when I was still at Powertrain, in order for us to put the Northstar/SC Northstar in the XLR.

The LS4 is a transverse engine to begin with so this may almost be a bolt in for the van.  I have seen them in Cavaliers, Fieros and now a minivan.  Bellhousing is the same as the 3800.

So how much time do you think you have in engineering, fabrication, and grunt work do you think you have in this?

How much real money - including the van and donor car do you think you have in it?
