Default Malibu v6 to v8 swap

Hi guys. Got a new Malibu wagon project. What is involved swapping the 6 for a small block? I assume the trans crossmember. However I am unsure about motor mounts. Are the frame mounts different like the Nova's were?

Crossmember is the same, you just need the frame brackets.

Crossmember is the same and v-8 stock style or after market motor mounts can be bolted in a set of existing holes forward of the holes for the v-6 already supplied by the factory.

Oh, you will only be using 3 bolts per mount instead of the four as moving the mount forward extends one corner past the front edge of cross member.
