As long as the engine mounting is the same there shouldn't be any problem. It is a straight six with 4500 cc displacement. Main difference from outside is the electronic distributor and coil

They could give you some issues if you are putting an 8 cylinder engine into a 6 cylinder registered vehicle as it states on the registration card how many cylinders it has from teh factory. Although, if you have an engine cover that covers the spark plugs/distributor cap and doesn't say V8 on it, you could be OK.
