Yes some club members have done this modification. It is definitely possible (the EF-EL-AU ones require more fiddling around and expense though). A guy named Mallyboo put an ED 4.0 engine and 4 speed auto in his EA Fairmont Ghia, but he hasn't been seen here in a while.

eb1 engine change

It appears if I can find a EB-ED it would be the least drama....only a pulley change...I had heard there was a small difference there.

Thanks for your help Jack...
Now who has a hot EB-ED six laying around....or even a very tired one suit rebuild.

regards Klompy

Check the for sale section, I think some guy was auctioning an EF/EL XR6 motor. I know it's not what you're after but it would be awesome if you could be bothered doing it.
