Question Anyone ever do an engine swap? KX60 into KX80

My daughter has physically outgrown her KX60 but she isn't ready to handle an 80's power. I picked up a 91 KX80 that has a bad engine. I'm going to start tearing both bikes down and put the 60 into the 80 frame. Have any of you done this conversion before? My preliminary measurements tell me that the bottom and front mounts will need to be extended but the swingarm mount will probably be right on. The bottom coolant hose is going to be an issue due to alignment. I'll be swapping all electrical. The connection from the airbox to carb is going to be an obstacle. Anything else?
