    You'd basically need the complete wiring with ECU for the V8. Nothing easy. It would be cheaper to just get forced induction on your current engine.

    You’ll also need to look into the transmission to see if it will mate up to the new engine. If it does, will you have to modify the driveshaft if the swap puts the engine in a slightly different spot. Are your axles and transfer case rated for the load that the V8 brings? If not, there be more work there.

    This would cost so much I can't imagine it's worth it. I know a guy did a diesel swap for $30k.
