you might try Dave's Vega Village for stock/redrilled rotors, also consider converting to S10 front brakes.

Are they vented rotors or solid?

You need to locate V8 frame mounts which bolt on to the chassis and then locate V8 engine mounts which mount to the engine.

What exhaust do you plan on using ?
That will narrow your motor mount options.

if you are doing a small block:
you can keep the 4 cyl spacers if you use don hardy mounts or powerbyace.com mounts (or front mount hooker/trans dapt mounts). If you want to use stock v8 monza mounts you have to cut the
4 cyl spacers off. The stock v8 monza mounts have a few extra bolt holes that are not on your car so you could drill into the frame rails and weld nuts in place or just reach up into the frame and attach nuts or weld the plates.

do you want exhaust manifolds or headers?

We were told this car had a V8 in it before we go it. But I am not sure it ever did , ? The headers look like they still have the original paint on um ( not burnt off at all ).. and there is no V8 motor mounts.. Ect, Ect,,

those are the hooker 2129 headers, you need this style mount kit with them, you can get it from transdapt, speedway motors, etc. heres a pic of it., its called the front mount system.
