'88 ea falcon

I have just inherited an early model EA falcon which is in very good condition. The only problem is that its a 3 speed auto.
the 3.9 trottle body injected engine goes well. I was told the easiest option is to fit a btr 85 le box. I was also told that fitting a ef engine & gearbox isn't that involved. any advice gratefully apreciated

one of my mates has put an EF engine & auto in his EA, becuase he got pee'd off when it went through 2 heads, as you would expect the whole ECU & wiring loom ect had to be transfered over and i know it wasnt cheap, mainly because he paid someone to fit it and i am talking 4 years ago be alot cheaper now. But it goes like a rocket !!!!!!!
