can u swab a 700 into a 660 chassis easily?

I come across a good 700 engine that I could get at a good price, I was thinking that the FI would be cool. could I swap out my 660 pretty easy or would it be alot of work?

The big part of the swap would not be dropping the engine into the chassis---it would be MASSIVELY rewiring of the chassis that would be needed to accommodate the factory ECU that controls the fuel injection system. THAT is radically different than the 660's rather basic wiring.

does the 800 rotax bolt in or do you have to fab mounts? Is the advantage of a rotax that you can still use the auto transmission? Isn't it a v-twin?
