2010 Malibu 5.3L swap??

Just as the title says...
Is it possible to swap in a 5.3L into a 2010 Malibu LT currently equipped with the 2.4L ecotec.
I have a spare 5.3
What trans would have to be paired with it?

Besides the engine and trans, what would it cost? Best guess
And any large problems I would run into.

Possible? Sure. Worth it? Highly doubt it. You'd end up cheaper selling what you have and buying an impala ss.
