there might be some engine mount fiddling. it should fit. sounds like a good conversion. i gave a mate a hand once to convert an xy to cable clutch. it's not hard either.

if you are going to rebuild it stick with the Windsor/Clevo V8, you will get a much better resale and no messing around.

i Looked into this a while ago, seemed easy enough.
lots of info on xffalcon.com about putting E/A series motors in XD-XF falcons and their engine bay almost identical to XW/Y.
