EB diff into XF

Hey guys just wondering if anyone can tell me for sure if a eb diff will fit into an xf without any mods. The reason being i dropped a clev and 4 speed into my xf out of an xc gxl but some lowlife decided they liked the disk 9inch more than me and taxed it. I had a 3.23 in my xf and it seem'd to rev to quick so i changed to a 2.77 and now not very good off the line but great on the highway.The 9inch had 3.00 to 1 and i have noticed the 4spd auto are using 3.08 gears which is good just wanted to confirm it would be a straight swap as everythin looks the same.
Thanks guys.

Re: EB diff into XF

It's only the work hack so i haven't done much, just, 5 speed, Hadfield lowered spindles with kings lows in the front, pedders in the back, window tint (thats what i do) a XD front spoiler (not shown) and tinted tail lights, it also has a glass sunroof.
Ok back to diffs.
