your local speed shop , and some companies on line , carry kits for what you want to do . they usually come with new engine mounts , radiator and supports and various connectors required . Also you might try one of the local car clubs and ask for help . You most likely will need to replace the transmission and driveshaft , in order to match the v-8 and to be able to handle the extra power of the v-8 . Remember too , the exhaust system should be upgraded to handle the power . You can do duel exhaust , but it is hard to do and tends to develope "rattles" . the original V-8 style of exhaust is a large diameter single pipe from under pass seat to rear muffler , then it comes out of the muffler with duel pipes . it is satisfactory for most street use . You also might want to upgrade your fuel lines to handle the thirsty V-8 ( larger diameter) It is most important to think of the motor swap as a total upgrade from front to rear , as the V-6 stuff will have a hard time dealing with the extra power . Even heavier duty shocks and springs should be considered to handle the extra weight of the v-8.
