Will the rear axle take the power? How about a brake upgrade?

Motor mounts, new cross member, PCM, engine wiring harness, exhaust, possible driveshaft, rear axle like tenspeed said, the 4cyl used a 7.5" open dif, vs an 8.8" limited slip on the V8. It's best to find a donor V8 car and swap everything over. Look at the forums on www.corral.net to get some more info and ideas.
