Sell your V6 and buy a V8 easiest and less headache way. to many things need to be changed that it doesnt make it worth it all

Re: swap questions

You will have to swap the engine, transmission, computer, wiring, gauges, etc.

Then you will also need beefier springs on the front and a stronger rear end to handle the power.

I believe you will also need a different k member to mount the V8.

Re: swap questions

As far as i know you wont have trouble with body panels but as for the motor it will be more trouble than its worth you can pick up a low mileage 2000-2002 gt 5spd here for 10-13k.
