you will have to change so much out of the car it would be better to just buy a gt...

and just so you know, a vortech supercharger kit at 4.4 psi will put you at approx the same hp as a GT of the same year, and you will be faster due to less weight. and thats on an untuned 4.4 psi. you can well up the psi to 9 or get a turbo and be even faster. dont count out the v6 just because its got 2 less cylinders.

with all the stuff you will have to change, you will end up losing money in the long run trying to put a V8 in your car. you should just sell it and get a GT ...........or you can go F/I or boost it and have fun with it too. :D

Bawhaha, a 4.4psi vortech:no won't get you anywhere close to a GT, and how in the world do you get 4.4 psi from a vortech?!

i dont know how much hp i want out of it just yet i might just end up keeping the v6, ive seen 440 hp with a stock bottom end, stage 3 heads and cams and a porcharger if i could break into the mid/upper 300s (hp) i would be happy with that,but from what i read ill just build the v6 and later in life get a v8

Mid 300s easy:
cai, long tubes, procharger 11psi kit, exhaust.
or
turbo kit, exhaust.

*of course you need fuel mods and such*
