Since they did come with a v8, everything you need is out there for a bolt in swap, the best way is to get a donnor v8 car to use for parts, engine, transmission, driveline, motor mounts, radiator, and use the v8 brakes..

you'll def want to talk to some experts, people who swap motors professionally. i can tell you already you'll want to strengthen the frame with some support rods welded to it. your drive shaft will need to be replaced, no way in hell a 4cylinder drive shaft will be able to handle what that 302 can crank out.
