easy as just go for it....

or you could do some research first. I'd like to put a 3000hp funny car motor into my ea.... some things are do-able some things aren't. And there's alot in between. A little bit of investigation helps.

i think people on here said it a messy job and better to fit a ba engine in an x series than an e series. thinka guy in mackay is doing it and posting pics. search the induction forum.

"dansedgli" said if you fit an xr6 turbo engine into an e series, you cant turn left.. or was it you cant turn right? hmm :lol:

x series from memory just needs the sway bar modded to go lower or moved to clear the sump

e series needs the k frame cut and rewelded and checked by an engineer cert guy. but fitting the engine is easy, the wiring is the tricky part.
use the search and poke yourself around into benj's eb fairmont wagon build thread as he is doing it right now on a dumy car.

Obviously you guys haven't seen my fiancé's car...SS THIS...the blue EL with a typhoon front bar and a BA XR6 Turbo Atomic motor...only a few mods are needed mainly the Kframe but the main concern is the wiring...we took it to Powercruise last year but have since upgraded to a 9" diff and are now getting an after market computer and re-wiring. He knows more of the technical stuff than what I do...
