2.3 swap to v8

My 2.3 in my 89 fox just died and i wanted to know how difficult it would be to put a carb'd 302 or 351 in my car. Do i need a computer for a carb'd engine? I've read plenty of swap write ups so im lookin for some more detailed advice from someone who's done this. Also what all do i need to change ex: tranny, rearend, etc...

U do not need a computer for a carb motor. U will also have replace your front and rear suspension to handle the weight of the 302 motor. I believe u also have to replace fuel lines. U may also need to replace your breaks with the gt ones.
