This was something that I was considering doing before I found my station wagon back in 2003. The looms will be different as the EA-ED looms, both 6cyl and V8 are very messy. Just change everything wiring wise, including shoving in the climate control and power windows and mirrors from the NC2. Mechanically, the crossmembers are different so that will need to be swapped as will the power steering lines, fuel lines etc. As I said, I was going down this route also until I found mine. There is a ebay link on these forums on a V8 fairmont wagon with LPG also, if you cannot be bothered with the spanner work :)
