Linda and Bengt,

Are the interpretations of the CFI and TLI that are produced in MPlus for EFA the same as they are in CFA: 1) Are the cut-offs/rules-of-thumb the same? and 2) Are these fit indices appropriate to use as evidence in deciding upon the number of factors to extract?

I don't know of any study of fit measures for EFA specifically. I would use the same cutoffs as for CFA and would use them these fit statistics to decide on the number of factors.
