guy over on the ford6 forums is doing a XR6T into a XF
has it with EA mounts sitting on the XF mounts with a spacer to lift it higher up..
and same kinda trouble like when fitting a E series motor to the XF.. the harmonic blaancer hit the sway bar etc so its accuallly not that difficult.

That motor looks out of place, someone. I can't understand why someone would go to the bother - there's so much more to the BA then just a good engine.

if you were gonna do it, buy yourself a smashed up xr6t or typhoon, keep the parts you want, and sell the rest.

might be something to do with having a custom car.

It looks like a tight fit to me. It will be interesting to c if it goes ok once its started and reved up.

I heard that where you need to cut the bonnet for EF/EL series, makes the car unroadworthy due to the rocker cover sitting so close to the front of the car. Something to do with the damage you inflict when hitting someone.

Anyone else heard this?
