you would need to change the entire axle assembly. V6 is 7.5" and v8 is 8.8"

What are you dynoing?

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

no, in fact it will make you slower, as it weighs more, and has more friction resistance.

Unless you have more than 350-400 hp, don't even consider it.
