i would just find a 305 or 350 that came out of the same gereration camaro to ensure that it matches. better off upgrading the tranny too if you are putting a bigger motor cause more than likely the v6 you have now doesnt have a tranny that can handle the v8 power (and they may not even bolt up). im not very familiar with these camaros, im used to the old school. easier and cheaper to work on. call your local chevy dealer, they can tell you all about it

you would have to change the radiator ,exhaust, front suspension, drive shaft, and figure out what to do with all the excess wireing being it wont be fuel injected. there is much more to it than just swapping an engine.
