You would have to fab in the trans to the car which isn't too much work, but it does have to be done right. You either have to run a 10 degree kit which makes stuff really, really tight in the engine compartment, or notch the frame horns to clear the CV's.
It sounds like you want to stick closer to the class 11 trans, so go with the single side cover case and convert it to the straight shift with some american parts if you can.
An HD side cover, HD diff, Close ratio 3rd and 4th with hardened keys and internals will do you good.
