dude, save the trouble and buy an 8
You will need to change the whole front wiring loom over as well as the ecu and bem looms iirc
the bellhousing is diff as well to the tranny
not 100% sure on the tranny either

if you do go this route
you will need a complete new exhaust, throw a good set of headers and sports mufflers etc on at the same time
new cam and some roller rockers

check out the V8 section for more info
