Default Port Android L Developer Preview?

I figure it's possible, but could I theoretically port the Android L Preview for the Nexus 5 to my HTC M8 Google Play Edition?
The hardware is fairly similar: same amount of RAM, same resolution, pretty much identical CPUs, same Bluetooth number.
I'm aware it was recently ported to the Nexus 4, but the 4 and 5 are both LG devices.
It's summer, so I have plenty of time, and I really want to have KitKat on my M8 XD
I found a couple tutorials for porting ROMs, but they've been between the same manufacturer.
I'm almost wiling to just go buy a Nexus 5, but I much prefer the M8 so I'd like to give this a shot if possible.
Thanks in advance!

Oh, and I'm not sure if this is the right forum section to put this in, so I might move it to the M8 section.
