81 Chevy Stepside engine swap

Hi all
I have an 81 Chevy Stepside. I'm swapping the stock inline 6 & A833 4 speed tranny for a small block & a turbo 350. Anyone done this before? The main ? is do I need different crossmembers
or just the mounts?

TY in advance

Have done this one several times. You will need V-8 frame mounts and TRUCK motor mount shells. Radiator from automatic truck.The rear crossmember is ok. You will also need the power steering mount from the V-8 if you retain power steering. Everything else is standard swap stuff.
