it is possible so long as you have a spare couple of thousand dollars floating around.

the most popular is the au swap,only a few modifications required and you get a nice smooth engine.

you'll need all the wiring and from a donor car can be very expensive.

i wouldnt bother... vct makes for an expensive conversion... stick with the non vct au i6 for a straight forward swap and reap the benifits of a strong smooth reliable retro tech 6...

go look at fordman351's conversion with a ba engine, but personally unless you can do a lot of the work yourself i wouldn't bother...

I used an EL engine complete with Broadband Manifold and ECU in my EB.

Here is a link to my thread on the do's and don't's of installing the EL engine into the EB. http://www.fordmods.com./forums/benj-s-el-engine-conversion-t61171.html

Cheers
