Yeah, all the info on the forum is very helpful but I need the Manual for measurements and step-by-step installation. But thanks for the input.

No such thing exists....

You have to have some inginuity or trust in your mechanical abilities. If you need more than some general direction you shouldnt do this swap. Although many forums have more than enough info on them to help you every step.

when it comes to this kind of swap its better to get people opinions and "from experience" advice. in most cases it will probly save you some time.

The V8 swap is nearly the same with the first generation body style and the second generation. They both have the same basic frames and the same basic suspension. They both use the same V8 motor mounts, transmission mounts, steering, driveshaft, and rear-end.
The V8 conversion manual will help you with the basics, and prevent the common problems that many engine swappers have when doing the V8 swap.
