Well, if you have the complete wiring loom to go with it, along with the ECU, BEM and ignition barrel, and arent afriad of wiring diagrams its possible.

think you need a later model K frame as well, not to mention the troubles to get it engineered and registered.

WTF is that bumper?

Is that picture of a UFO sighting or something?

Putting/fitting the motor in wouldn't be that hard. Getting it to run would be! Looking at all different wiriing, ECU, etc.

Probably better off getting an EB V8 engine mate. EL V8 didnt have any more power (throw a decent set of extractors on an EB V8 and it'll make similar power to an EL XR8 motor). Will make life much easier with wiring.
