Re: E Series I6 to V8 conversion
Ok, I've never done anything like this, but this is what my head suggests;
V8 engine mounts, POSSIBLY a V8 k frame.
V8 transmission for sure, don't know if there is a difference between I6 and V8 pedal boxes and clutches.
You'll need an entire V8 engine loom, possibly an entire main loom, as the ECU plug will be different.
You're best bet is getting a wreck, parking it right next to an I6 and just replacing bits as you pull them out.
