Piston and liner swap k series

As my 1.8 k series bottom end (‘99 SuperSport) has 2 knackered big ends and I’ve a stripped 160 trophy engine from a ZR (that I was going to pinch the head from) would it make sense to drop in crank, pistons (160 marked) & rods and liners into the current engine? Or is there any benefit to using the full trophy bottom end (and grinding clearance for the starter)?

It can be done, however, messing around with bits that have worn together is always at a risk. Personally I'd fit the complete engine rather than moving all the internals.
