    It's not cheap, it's not as easy as you think and it's not going to look right. It will be a hassle and there will be a lot of fabrication involved

    People have already done it; and the body lines don't match up well at all. The EG is more rounded than the EF. I've seen a DA front-end on a 88-91 Sedan that looked pretty clean, but nothing beats the SiR front end.

    It wouldn't have looked cool at all, the EG is wider, MUCH more rounded, and just has completley different lines... If you do a swap, just stick with the SiR, I have the SiR on my car, love it...its not a complete bolt-on affair itself, but theres much less involved than swapping a completely different year's front on.
