S10 V8 Conversion pointers........

Hi, I bought a 1988 Chevy S10, and have a 400 horse V8 that I would Like to stuff in it. The S10 weighs 3300, and is a manual. The trannsmission that I want to use is a automatic th 350. My biggest worry is finding a way to shift, because obviously the steering column doesnt have a shifter, but I have a Monte Carlo with a floor shifter. Thats hooked to a th 350 tranny. How would I go about shoving this V8 into the truck and having a shifter ? has any one came across this problem ? if so how did you do it ?.

Questions: How to Convert a Manual Chevy S10 into a Automatic.
Could I run long tubed Holley afterburner headers ?
How Could I weight the back down to get traction ?.
