You will need to run the EF engine bay wiring as it was wired differently as the EF ecu has a 104pin connector.

Any reason why you want to use an EF ECU? The wiring in the EA is already compatible with the EL ECU, bar a few missing wires for the BBM vacuum switch & thermofans.

BenJ & Troyman have some writeups & photos showing how they installed EL motors, as well as a number of other members.

Mate at wreckers chucked the ecu in with the motor and the wiring harness

As long as the ECU is for a manual & you have a Smartlock Bypass. Otherwise, if you're planning to mod the engine, an auto ECU & J3 with an ELXR6 tune. You can disable Smartlock using the J3 as well.

So can you run an elxr6 engine in an ef just by pluging up and using the engine bay loom and computer of an elxr6?

Maybe.

You might also need to use the EF dash loom.

And the loom plugs are different in the engine bay between the EF and EL.
