v8 swap and suspension.

ok im gonna do a v8 swap in a 2-3 years from now when im a little more financially secure and have the space for it, but i was also wondering when you do a v8 swap will you have to beef up the front suspension as well? seeing that it is a bigger motor.... but i dont think its that much bigger to make much of an issue for suspension its only 2 more cyclinders and some weight from the crankshaft pistons, cam, lifters and small stuff, i literaly jus looked through the whole v8 forum and couldnt find ne thing on this so if ne one could help me out it would be great.
