I will keep posting pics for chops if he is still around.

I just have one Question for now, Do I have to remove the Throttle Body in order to get the engine out. O the van is a 1990 2wd short wheel base with front and rear A/C.

Thanks in advance

I think it would be easiest if you remove the throttle body and intake manifold. You are going to run into clearance issues. You should also jack the front of the van up, at least 2 feet, to make it easier to snake the engine out of the bay.

Sure, all of the accessories can be transferred to the V8.
