What exactly is needed for a basic v8 swap in an 82 fj60? at this point, I'm assuming to keep the existing trans.

Of the top of my head i can think of...

SBC motor, fully dressed
Adapter from the motor to trans
Clutch kit
Adapter motor mounts

What else?

Thanks,

E-

No reason to go SBC unless you already have one. There are many reasons folks moved on to LS units. The electrical "headaches" have plug-in solutions from many vendors now.
