v8 conversion

    Hi, all. I was reading the forums today, and I saw that a conversion from a 4.3l v6 to a 5.7l v8 is relatively easy and that everything just bolts in. Is it really that simple of a job? I have a 97 with an auto and v6, so if I just found any old vortec 350 of the same model year, it would go in easily? Would I need to get a new transmission to accommodate all of the extra torque? Thanks a lot, any information is appreciated
