Usually the motor mounts are going to be different. Very different.
You'll also need a computer made for the V8. One for that particular engine, in fact. All the sensors. All new exhaust. Transmission. Clutch. You'll need either a new or fixed driveshaft. The differential probably won't handle the power, so you'll need one that can. All new driven accessories: power steering pump, alternator, AC compressor, etc. You'll need a bigger radiator.
Your brakes probably won't be sufficient to deal with the power from the big engine.
