Will the later model efi windsor motors go into the XM/P without any bonnet mods or will there be clearance issues with the upper manifold thing plenum(?) and the bonnet underside?

As EBXR says tower braces can get in the way a bit.
Front serpentine drive on EB-up 5.0's will have clearance problems between some accessories and the front of your left shock tower(see my 351w into XE article). '86-'93 5.0 mustang or 5.0 F-series serpentine drives fit better although they also stick out further.
