ive been told its alot of effort and isnt worth it just buying a V8 one already is easier i personally have never done one and dont know how to but ive heard is to much trouble as the motors run completely differently apparently

Computers
Wiring loom and engine loom
V8 gear box, as the input shaft is different for 6 and a cylinder box, unless you get it changed, maybe the bell housing, not to sure
Possibley fuel lines

Anyway some things to start ya off

front springs and shocks (due to heavier engine)
probably more...
