Martin,
Inner subframe skirts, radiator support and battery plate need to be welded in as replacements for the ea/eb/ed parts. Basically, everything after that is bolted on. Few mods include radiator shroud, aircon hoses and condensor/dryer(if you want aircon). Electric arial(once again, if you want it) and the obvious fresh coat of nicely matched paint. Around $5000 for XR front, if you wanted just gli/fairmont front, might be a tad cheaper...... But whoever welds the radiator support in, get them to ring Hillier boys as it has to be actually welded in approximately 1 inch back and they will give you the exact specs.
Hope this helps.
Rob

Another thing is, the EF/EL bays are shorter than the EB bays. So a big problem is the fan. If you leave the old fan as part of the EB motor, the fan can hit the radiator at high RPM(I learnt the hard way!!! 4 radiators later!!!). This can be avioded by putting a electric fan or pushing the fan as far back as possible... but the electric fan is the best option.

Yeh, like I said, the radiator support has to be moved back 1 inch. I had the front end put on over 2 years ago now and have never had a problem. But I think your 6 cylinder is longer than my V8, thats why the fan hits the radiator. This is was a good point to mention actually Kyprez, for those that ever changeover that have a 6. Ive seent those twinlight jobs and I'm appauled they have gone to the trouble of making twinlights for Holden Commos(Absolutely UGLY) and not yet developed them for the AU falcon.
Ciao,
Rob
