Hey im not sure if this has been covered previously...

What are the pros and cons of fitting a V8 in to a VS V6?
Is is as easy as just fitting a V8 in or do i have to change anything else eg transmission?
Legally its easy but is it mechanically easy?
Or is it just easier to buy a VS V8.
My car is in excellent cond and i know its full history.
What problems will i face if any??

probably easier to buy a car with v8 already in it.
I havent done it but you will need these things at least.
new g/box,muffler system, wireing loom,computer.
Dont know if the brakes were different.
