Question 4.0litre HP engine in a 65 XP???

Hey all

Im very keen on the 65 XP 4 door and 2 door coupe falcons. Im thinking of buying one and doing it up... black paint job... lowered... 12 slotters... sound system etc (I dont want it to be original, even though like look beaut restored). The XP's are pretty cheap at the moment, i could probably pick up a nice one for around 4 grand. Now with the engine im stumped on what to do. I am only 18 and a reco 302 would put me over power to weight so i was hoping for a 4 litre HP EF-EL xr6 engine plus a 5 speed manual. Im not so sure if it would be a clean job and fit nicely, yet a 302 apparently slots straight in. (Note: this will be a year or so project). I was just wondering if this was a good idea and where i could buy the engine and mechanical parts to make this work. The HP engine puts out some decent power stock and the 65 falcon is pretty light for its age as it isnt very large, which would make the car run pretty well.

Any ideas people???
