Too much to list. The entire power train control system (fuel inj, ecm, sensors, wiring harness, etc) would have to be swapped (at minimum). Also, your trans might not be able to handle the added power. This is a big project.

Search the internet for forums dedicated to the car and engine you are working on. They generally have a ton of info that you won't find anywhere else.

Would it be easier to do an engine swap from the same year supercharged

Engine, trans, wiring, and engine/trans computer would most likely all have to be swapped.

I have a base mode series 1 park ave I wanted to know what I can do to tune it up a bit
