What's needed for a 4g69 block swap?

My e4 block finally walked so needing to source a replacement and planning to build a forged one.
Been offered a 4g69 block but can anyone advise what's needed?
Is it possible to just block the mivec feed off and use my existing e4 head?
I have a e6 ecu and injectors but aware I might need larger injectors, was planning to use an 80 series turbo but can I also use my existing loom and connectors for the 4g69 block or is there differences?
Also can anyone advise on a suitable headgasket that will work with my e4 head?
Finally is there anything else I need to look at? Does the gearbox bolt straight on or is there things that need done there also?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers Aj

The only "issue" that comes to mind is that the 4G69 engine NA and wont have oil jets to cool the underside of the pistons!

they can be machined but it costs a lot and new oil jets are expensive too... Also, it is a sort of open deck block... IMHO, I would buy a 4g64 if one was looking for cheap block..
