    It has been done a lot. I haven't read up on it much but I know you have to convert to a hydrollic clutch setup and obviously you want the computer harness and computer. You may have to use some new gauges too that the computer can communicate to. You won't have to re-invent the wheel as many have gone through this before so it shouldn't be too bad once you get the info you need.

    this is all right, the only big stuff you may have to make is drive shaft, trans cross member, and moter mounts.

    might wanna look into GMPP or EDELBROCK performer RPM carb'd manifolds if you don't want to mess w/ computer. both manifolds flow well. other than that, everything else you should be able to find from a conversion kit, or make your own relatively easy out of some tubing.
