85 V6 to V8 Swap
please help, I only have a small one, engine that is.
I live in edinburgh Scotland and last year got my hands on a 85 2.8 mpi V6 with 3 speed + overdrive auto box. I believe the box is a 200 R4, so I was told anyway.
I have now decided I want more power, so naturally its time for a V8. I have spent a lot of time and money on the body of the car so dont want to just go out and buy another car, so the engine swap will have to be made.
What I need to know is, will I need to change my box, diff, breaks and suspension for V8 parts. I have been told that the V8's and V6's used a lot of the same parts?
Please help, winters setting in and its time to start building a new improved toy for summer.
