the weight difference shouldn't be that drastic. 150lbs. max so find someone about that size to sit on your front bumper while you still have the v6 in it to see what it will look like with the v8. as for what it will do to the handling. it will take a very brave person and alot of duct tape to keep them inplace while you take it thru the curveys. :D the trans. and rearend should be ok as long as the motor isn't too radical.
