not recommended unless you have a lot of money. You need to change front springs and shocks to support the extra weight. Motor mounts, transmission mounts, transmission, driveshaft, rear end, rear springs and shocks to take extra torque, computers need to be changed to program v-8 instead of 4 cylinder, Exhaust and catalytic converter need to be changed.
