You WILL need a Mk8 flexplate. I was just about to install my Marauder converter, when it was discovered that I was sent THE WRONG FLEXPLATE (a stock unit was sent instead of the paid for Mark8 one).
You need new torque converter nuts (4) and the 6 crank to flexplate nuts. If you have a shop manual (pref. the big blue manual made by Ford, or a Haynes), a lot of room to work with (jack the car high off the ground and put it on jack stands), the required tools, and the thirst for Mercon V in your mouth and on your body, you should be OK.
