You will need the V8 bracket that bolt onto the cross-member as they are totally different to 6 cylinder. I know that XA V8 onwards brackets bolt onto all models from XA to XF, pre XA I am unsure about, bad memory.

As for gearbox cross-member it depends on which transmission you will be using, most of them swap and can bolt onto different locations if needed.
From poor memory XA-XD cross-members are the same, XE-XF are smaller different ones.
