I think its been established before that a BOSS 5.4 will physically fit in the engine bay.
but you will have bonnet clearance issues, likely need customised extractors and a whole list of other considerations.

I have seen a BOSS 5.4 in an XG and it was a very tight fit, just enough room between the shock towers to squeeze it in. By the looks of it, it had custom extractors and a big mofo bonnet bulge at least twice as high as a BA/BF BOSS bulge lol.

I don't know how much difference there is in engine bay size between a XG and EF though, but if you have skills, time, patience and deep pockets you can fit it in :P

I do also beleive that it will be nose heavy-as this was the case when a boss was put in an AU. cant see why an E series wouldnt be nose heavy too.

Why bother putting a BOSS into an ef.

Waste of time

Waste of money

Will handle like Noahs Ark, but yeah sure got for it if you have pockets deep enough like a whores C***
