Only thing you will need to chop is the bonnet, engine bay width is the same from EA to FG.

i think you will need a bigger bulge than the xr8 one. the barra motor requires the xr8 bulge most of the time when put in an e-series. now think about it, don't the xr8's have the bulge to fit the motor under the bonnet. i think you will need a huge bonnet bulge
