1. have someone build you the wiring harness (unless you really want to do that yourself). there are people in the states that have built them before.
then all you do is wire up like 3 wires - power, ground, and something else. real simple.
2. need an EJ-EA adapter plate. and i think a redrilled flywheel. SJR and others sell them. this is to adapt the EJ engine to the EA transmission - it's basically just a spacer, due to length differences, other than that it's rather simple.
technically you can do steps one and 2 yourself but depends on your time and ability. far easier to just buy them up front and have less down time/complications.
if you love wiring, do step 1 yourself but it's a LOT of wiring. if you love custom metal working - do step 2 yourself.
SJR sells both of them and he's a great guy. adapter plates are $185, wiring harness is $250. flywheel can be done yourself but SJR sells them too.

3. other than those two issues -an EJ engine drops right into a turbo XT. and bolts right up.
get the engine and those parts above and it all bolts right in easily with very few wires.
