you will need TCM loom TCM andv8 ECU from the other car, as well as the Rac has to be for a V8 the 6 will not do.
front springs need to be from/for a v8 rears dont matter, get a 28 spine diff or you will make scrap out of the 6 diff.

and use a new pair of engine mounts. now if you use the K-frame from the NF yo will have to get new NF v8 engine mounts as the EB v8 ones are diffrent.

EB FLAT
NF ROUND
