its been posted before...
but anyway
it can be done, you need xg engine mounts, swaybar, radiator, and some other little bits and pieces..

you also need a complete loom to suit the ef motor, need to modify an ef (or get an xh) cluster... oh and then you need to make a tranny fit, (t5 will fit nicely)

oh and there may be bonnet clearence issues.. not sure on that one

its a huge job, but a xe with a 4.0l OHC would scream....

that pic looks awesome hope it all works fine. Ive got a mate who is in the process of putting an ef engine into an XE at the moment, it all fits. he had to use an xg radiator, engine mounts, recovery bottle. But it all fits fine and still plenty of clearence.
