I'm in Phoenix. Havn't done an LQ9 swap, but I have done an LS7 swap.
For parts you should have most of what is required as the front AC accesories swap right over. You should get a new K-member while you are swapping, trust me on this, it makes you life much easier the next time you need to get under the car. Especially if you are incorporating a procharger.
If you are swapping a 3rd gen engine for a 4th gen you will need a few wire harness adapters that are available online. You will need a cam sensor relocation harness (or extend your own). You will need to consider the intake manifold you are using. If you are using a gen 4 intake, you will need an adapter harness as well.
Give me a PM if you need any other advice.

You will need to drill and tap the block for the serpentine accessories. Also look into the aster bracket vs the pro charger set up.
