Big Dave,
Thank you very much for the detailed information! I read up regarding the oil pan and have to use a passenger car oil pan (most likely aftermarket). I did come across the information about the hood not being able to close, so planned on getting an aftermarket cowl hood. Don't plan to race the car, I just want to do something different other than the 6.0. Figured HP and TQ is more than enough power for the car, so not planning to upgrade any parts for higher HP/TQ numbers. "Good news is it uses the same motor mounts so it will drop right into the car", that was my main concern and didn't want to get custom mounts. Do you know if the OEM motor mounts will be able stand up to the weight of the 8.1 engine in comparison to the SB 327?
