Phone [Q] Pure AOSP Nexus Like

I know that the Nexus 5 pretty much has the same hardware as our G2.

So I was wondering if we can flash the G2 kernel from a ROM... say MAHDI... and add the system images from Nexus 5, will everything work??

I don't want any excess customizations as the ones that are available in many roms. I want the Nexus experience on my G2.
Lineage:
LG G2 running PA Alpha KitKat
HTC One (Black - 32GB) - Converted to Google Play Edition
HTC One X (Black - 32GB) + Nexus 4
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Galaxy Nexus
HTC One X (White - 32GB)
Samsung Galaxy S2 + Nexus S + HTC Incredible S + iPhone 4 + Blackberry Bold 9900 + HTC Desire + Nokia Lumia 700(All at the same time)
Samsung Galaxy S
Motorola Milestone
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

Why not install an AOSP ROM and pretend the customizations aren't there? Most of the AOSP ROMs are pretty close to "stock" out of the box.

When I had my nexus it had a custom ROM on it within an hour.

Most of the custom ROMs, when in their early days, have stock Android, are pretty stable, but as the features are added, they start misbehaving.
Not talking about SODs or Random reboots in G2 in the early days.
Issues with the framework, etc.

Here's a thread already asking for what you wanted.

i.e. install an AOSP based ROM like CM or other flavor.
