Engine brackets... youll have to have made... or make your self... how good of a welder are you?
Trans... well what trans came with the nova... It might be able to bolt right up to the 3800sc... if not... a getrag 5 speed is always a good choice... mines out of a chevy bretta.
youll use the wireing harness that comes with the engine... but youll need a wiring diagram for the nova... to know what wires are what, so that you can hook the novas wires to the correct wires on the harnnes.
Again an engine swap is NOT the easiest thing in the world... but its far from impossible... I suggest doing lots and lots of research... learn how to weld... learn how to read a wireing diagram... or gettting someone who knows what they are doing to do it for you... a shop should only charge you for time... if you have all the parts. An engine swap can be done in 3, 8 hour days... so do the math and find out what your local shop will charge you.
