Yeah they should fit. But make sure you can get the hose to fit into the radiator. They bolt up the same! just make sure before you dirty it or damage it incase you have to take the part back. But im 99% sure it will fit!

im pretty sure the cost of the housing and top hose put togather cost LESS than just a EB top hose - wierd huh!

I put an EA thermostat housing on an EF 4.0l
I know it sounds stupid but the old EF one had an encounter with a power pole in its previous car and I only had the EA one from my old Engine so you should be able to put an EL on on an EA (EF and EL motors are identical apart from ignition setup)
