Sure. I plan on doing VGs, underbody panels, rear diffuser, and functional rear spoiler. Thought the engine itself will not be the most fuel efficient, I will be changing to a 6 speed with lower OD ratios. I know one guy who's done the same engine swap and transmission. He reports a best of 26mpg out of a 331ci V8 (navigator engine) with a 6 speed and 3.73 gears.
