you can upgrade to the 8.8" rear end and then after that... well it kinda just goes to body mods.

Basically only the 8.8" rear is a "direct" swap/upgrade.

Technically the GT exhaust/mufflers are a semi direct swap, but will require a different mid pipe or fabrication to the factory mid pipe to make work, and why would you wanna go with basic GT mufflers anyways as the cost for this is almost the same as getting some form of better aftermarket setup.

The M112 super charger is also semi interchangeable, but again requires an adapter manifold and a lot of custom fabrication to make it work.

As stated, that's about it, everything for the V8s are specifically made for those motors.

I heard rear swaybars also bolt on and maybe headers? but not for sure on that. I know you can put the GT exhaust but with an aftermarket midpipe. I know the hoodscoop can be added since its the same hood.
Anything I might be missing?

Everything on the GT is a direct swap except the powertrain components (unless swapped as a whole unit)

Headers will 100% NOT fit from a GT, that's 4 cylinders per side versus 3. Completely different design. Anything, body, suspension, and interior will swap over.

I consider headers a part of the powertrain since they are directly mounted to the engine.

Yeah but they are not essential for the car to start and move. Besides being illegal not to have any exhaust and this can harm the engine it will start and move.
