you will basically need front engine mounts, a radiator with correct lower hose location and a bunch of time. the th400 is a stretch unless you find an adaptor to bolt it up to the engine and the tcase

bigger battery?
bigger fuel pump?

Def. a better radiator maybe a 4 core...

spool of wire or two for running ignition, etc...

oil pressure guage + temperature guage (I would want to monitor those anyways...)
