You need the engine brackets that go between the engine & the mount. I think the mounts are the same for the V8 as for the 6, but check at a parts store to be sure. The plates can be found on a 75-79 Nova (or clone) with SBC engine, or maybe a similar year Camaro, and they were still available from GM as of a couple of years ago. Try to find an intact V8 junker in a yard & pillage it for the plates, accelerator cable, etc.

The plates were around $18 each from GM a couple of years ago.

alright thanks a lot i am going to get everything i need to do it right. but i have a question, do you think 200 is too much to pay for a zz4 crate motor that needs to be rebuilt? and also the owner dropped a bolt in it so i have to search for it. i cant decide if i should buy it thanks a lot

Sounds like a decent deal, assuming the motor runs, but has not been run since the bolt went in.
