You will need new mounts and a wire harness and a bunch of other little stuff. Its almost easier to go buy a GAGT with one in it.

your best bet is to go on google and search - there are many clubs that have online forums where you can get better info on what you are looking for. if you can't find any info on google about it, don't even attempt it.

a welder, unless you do it , and alot of work , you will need the mounts wiering harnes trans all electronics from under the hood incl the fuse box , from the 3.4 the cars going to be heavyer too with more tork so keep that in mind ,and you may need to cut and move some stuff, not recomended.. but if you dont have anything better to do , its been done before , good luck...
