87 4cyl auto to v8 5 spd?

I am looking into a cheap good condition body etc. 87 with a 4 cyl auto. How hard would it be to convert to a 5.0 or other v8 and 5 sp tranny. Thanks guys.

Misread that one at first. The conversion is doable, but I have heard from a lot of folks that there are wiring differences between 4 and 8cyl cars. Consider a 2.3 turbo swap if you want ease, or run a carburated v8.
