Will any of the SHO motors mate up to the G-series?

Nope, both the 3.0/3.2L V6 SHO motors have the bolt pattern of the  V6 Vulcan.

The biggest issue with the SHO engines is their size and weight of their iron block. The height from the bottom of the oil pan to the top of the intake manifold is 27 inches and the length from the tranny mounting flange to the end of the crank pulley is a just under 22 inches.

The location of the front intake manifold runner is about 3 inches too high to close the hood and the transmission is going to be in the wheel well.
