G'day, mate, your k frame should be fine, as well the cross member 2. you will need a longer tailshaft, brakes to pull up the v8. change your foot pedals, thats easy. And, your exhaust. I just did the same thing to my vk. I hope this help you. Cheers Jason

You had better find a new motor, technically your not allowed to fit a red motor to a VK has to be a black motor due to polution requirements. You would probably get by with a blue motor with black motor polution gear.

Ive a red motor too. All you have to do is make sure the pollution gear the same as the vk setup. Do you know what i mean, mate. Just have it the same as blue and black. My first vk had a 253 red, then i got it on the road. Now, I wish i still had it on the road. Cheers Jason

If your running it on straight gas it wont matter what manifold you have, polution gear wont matter.
Talk to some gas guys about manifolds specificly designed for gas performance. See if theres a gas direct injection setup rather than blow through the carb. Better performance, better fuel economy & tidier engine bay

cheers
