Question EF XR6 motor into EB2

Ive got the opertunity to aquire a complete EF XR6. The car is a write off but has only been rolled. I want to install the engine box and diff into my EB2 Fairmont ghia. I want to run The motor with everything staying EF. Except the intake manifold and wiring/computer. Can anyone see anyproblems with this?? I want to run my computer for a while and then get a unichip programmed on the dyno so the motor gets to its full potential. I know i have to change the coil pack to dizzy. Will the EF air con compressor clear the EB2 manifold?? Any advice would be great!

Well, if someone can fit an AU engine into an EA , I'm guessing that an EF should be a bit more easier.

Personally, I wouldn't have the faintest but my guess is that it all should fit in considering an AU did!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

your problem will stem from the fact that the EF engine doesnt run a distibuter, rather a Coil Pack system, also the ECU is significantly diffrent. An EL XR6 engine would be a better bet.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............
