It is almost not worth doing it ... You will need a built transmission, HD Output shafts. GTP suspension a GTP wire harness, GTP ECU, HO Fuel pump. there is alot of little stuff to depending on if the motor you get is not 100 % complete. ( They never Are ) A friend of mine did that and when it was all said and done he could have just bought a GTP for a few hundred bucks more. But if you decide to go for it good luck there nice.

Why go thru all of that when you can own mine. http://www.leesurenail.com
