anything is possible.. there are several truck magazines on this site you might want to check out..  like truckin.. or sport truck.. click my user name for some links..

seems the 4.2 V6 uses a the 6 bolt windsor bolt pattern..  so you might be saved there...  so you could use a 302 or a 351W or one of its stroker versions.

will the transmission in there hold up to a real V8 power plant..  perhaps NOT..

sounds like a fun swap...
