Is V8's front end compatible with 5ktq?

I hae he complete "kit" for a 200 20V wagon that I was going to
convert. It has to include the bumper extensions, or you have to be
willing to fabricate them from steel stock. Also, you will have to
figure something out as far as the tadiator setup, as the 5's have it
on the side with the A/C condensor, and it's in the front of the V8.
I'm not 100% sure, but I'm thinking the 5 would hit the radiator int
he front. I was going to do it with the V8 conversion as well, so that
would not be a problem. However, either way, the plumbing for the
radiator and the A/C condensor is WAY different. So, there would have
to be a workaround for that as well.

I also have another 5000 front end appart. Unfortunately, I don't have
a photo account, nor are the parts here. I'm living in Houston now,
and the cars are on my five acres in the Oklahoma City area :(
