Question Buick 350 Engine Swap

Hey all! I have a good Buick 350 V8 (out of a 69 Skylark convertible)available to me to swap into my 92 YJ. I like my 4.0 I6, but, hell, this is a
V8!

I know there are thousands of people who have done swaps, but most I read about are Chevy engine swaps. Any ideas of what I am going to run into here or what I would need to make this happen? Any and all thoughts welcome.

Thanks!

Go to novak--adapt.com and do a little reading. I believe they make an adapter for that motor but im not positive.

why do you want to go to a V8

They are companies that are making 300-350 dependable horsepower from that jeep six. Why would you go through the expense and trouble of going to a Buick V8 or all things? Going to a Chevy V8 has a gazillion parts out there with so much experienced people who have done it. But the Buick? Also, why not save a lot of money to max the horsepower in what you have?

Take care,
