The wiring for the engine controls will not be the same, you will need the harness for the V8 power train. You will also need the V8 radiator, and exhaust, the front springs will also need to be V8 springs not V6, sway bar is a lot larger. That's about all I can think of right now, I'm sure there are other things that will come up as you go.
