That would be an NA or NC. The NA didn,t come out with a V8, I think. The NC did.

If you have the whole v8 car it isnt to bad (or so I was told by someone who had done it). Being an EF the k-frame is the same so you dont need to swap that. Its pretty much just a case of stripping the I6 engine bay, then moving all the other stuff over. Have to swap the loom and ecu over as well of course.

I think (but find out first) that if you just replace the engine bay loom (goes right to the ecu) and the instrument cluster you will be very close.
