Engine swap, doubling the cylinders!

Found a gentlemen about 35min North of me willing to part with his 350 w/ tranny for a very nice price; so if all goes according to plan, by the end of next month I will go from a 2.4l 4 banger to a 5.7 v8. Will post pictures and updates as parts start coming in and the actual swap.
