3.9 v6 swap with 318 5.2

I have a 2000 Dakota with 3.9L V6 with stick shift. I was wandering what it would take to do a v8 engine swap. I want to put a 318 in it. I know I will have to change the computer but what else? Or w !headbang ill it be better to buy one with a v8?

i just finished the same exact swap 3.9 to a 5.2 and it didint go in with out a fight but i got it. you gotta use the axle, drive shaft, ecu from the 5.2 the 3.9 parts wont work and, make sure you keep every last bolt, and put them in labeled bags that makes it so much easier in the end i know it sounds like a pain but trust me its a life saver.
