Aside from interior and the motor not much is going to work for you. If you were to go through the hassle of putting that motor in there though you had might as well get a 5.0 out of a expo.

well this is why im torn about it because it is my dd and i cant have it down for more than a week or so .........which is why im debating just rebuilding the 3.0 but i just figured for all the parts and labor of rebuilding it it may be easier to swap in a new motor ....but i really dont know and all i would be planing on using out of the expo in the link is the motor i'd probably sell off the interior parts on here lol
