Has anybody tried an engine swap on a Deville or Seville with the LC3 N*? Would the LC3 N* bolt to a FWD bell housing? If not, would all LC3 components bolt onto a transverse N* short block?

mounts are different
and then try programming the cars 100 other modules to accept it...

I could go on and on. Hmm I will

The engine is longer. I think. yes it is.
The accessories attach on the left and right sides of the engine. The trans is on the right side of a FWD.
Water pump is on the front, so you have to drive it with the belt, but the engine is longer plus the pump sticks out.
The engine is taller.
You need a second radiator for the S/C
ECM will work just fine from the LC3 into the DTS
Forget the mounting issue. You are installing a LC3 in a FWD car.

I guess the big problem is fitting a LC3 into a DTS, hooking up the accessories and the plumbing
