Take to Engine loom off the XH Engine and put it on the EL engine. No issues.

EL & NL 4.0L are the same loom.

You will need to extend a couple of wires for the TPS and air temp etc, on the XH loom, but it is much easier to do then modding them the other way around.

I'm guessing the XH is pre Oct 97 - which has the separate transmission plugs - one round, one rectangular.
Best option as SWC suggested - won't need to extend wiring.

Might be a good safeguard to put the cam angle sensor gear onto the dizzy before installing - same gears meshing - should be no aux shaft gear issues then.
