Sure it might work, but it won't last if you try doing any kind of aggressive driving. You're kind of limited to power with the 4.3 cast crank but even in stock form I think it's too much for the boxster 5 speed
Never really was a Chevy guy, but working in a shop for almost a decade now I respect their engines. Everything else about GM is garbage, but there engines are nothing to shake a stick at.

Hmm.. It just costs so much to swap that trans. Other than the longer shift cables, does it require different axles?

I think I'm going to try the 5 speed for now and then later on swap over to the 6 speed when it breaks. I mean I have a 5 speed now. Why not have some fun and break it. \m/
