Not a chance.
they are totally different beasts.
X series Falcons have their crossmembers as part of the body structure for starters.

Yeah, it's been done. By Ford. It's called an XH. :twisted:

The only way to do that would be to use the front from an XH, from the firewall forward. Big job though....

Are you just trying to put a V8 in? - there are no frame changes required, just mount plates

Ahhhh - No, you wont be doing that real easy.

Best start with an XH and put XE Panels on if you want that. I dont think they'll just bolt up though

and thats only going to give you a ute.

If you want better suspension you can always go with RRS, but its hell expensive

putting the 4.0 into it should be reasonably straight forward, so that only leaves you with suspension and brakes.
given that brake upgrades for the X-Series seem to be more available, i'd just sell the kit you've got for your EF and buy something that would suit the XE

22" on the front of an EF?
maybe if they're pushed out a lot to clear the balljoint.
