send a pm to brad (waggin). he did the exact thing. converted a 6cyl eb to a 5.0. i'm sure he can tell you all you need to know. his was re - plated as a v8 as well i think.

how smashed is the eb xr8. might be easier to swap all the good panels over to that if the roof and chassis is still good.

motor gear box - xmember will all bolt up to the same spots as the 6 cyl . you will need to use the whole front wiring harness , engine harness and dash harness aswell as the brake pedal box from the v8 body . SO basiclly everything from the dash to the headlites you need to change to do the conversion ( i did brads conversion ) ,
