Default Supra with Dodge V8

I have an 87 Supra and a Dodge V8 in my garage. I would like to put them
together. The supra engine was rebuilt years ago but the electrical
hook-up after the rebuild didn't work for the previous owner. I'm hoping
to sell the engine for enough to put in the dodge. I feel it is`a simpler
engine and would like the torque increase.
I thought the transmission would bolt to the dodge but found out only the
turbo trans bolts directly via a dokota bellhousing. Any know of a way to
use the w58 trans with a dodge v8? I'm not looking for a big power
increase so the w58 is adequate. I think the bolt pattern is different
from the r154.

There's no easy way to put the Dodge V8 in the Supra. Not only don't
bolts line up, but I wonder if there is enough room in the space for
an inline 6 to fit a V8. You're talking about fixing a 25 year old
car. Either fix properly with the right parts or don't fix it at all.
Otherwise, you're barking up the wrong tree.
