Question EF/EL XR6 head on an EA block???

I'm thinking of an engine rebiuld as my current head is about to go to the pearly gates of the engine heaven.
I was wondering if it's possible to fit an EF/EL XR6 head on EAs 3.9 block. Would it be a bolt on job or would it require some modifications.
Has anyone done this???

Thanks for that Gli 90
I've already got an EF manifold on it with cold air intake. Rewiring should't be a problem cos I've got a Unichip, so it's only a matter of getting the Unichip tuned up on a dyno.

Yep, its a straight bolt on. Might be an idea to use a thinner head gasket to get the compression up a bit. Even without it, you should notice some very nice improvements.

Good Luck.
