If I just buy 4 piston caliber can I use xt levers and hoses or do I switch everything out?

You can use your xt levers but you may need new hoses.

you need a different banjo bolt -- the 2 piston calipers use a long one that goes side-to-side all the way thru the caliper body. The 4-pistons use a short one that just go front-to-back.

your old hoses will work fine

Having done a swap from 2 piston calipers to 4 piston calipers for a customer, what olslash said is correct in that the banjo bolts are different. However I believe that all new shimano calipers come with the correct banjo bolt for the corresponding caliper style so it should be an easy swap over

Right on thanks

I have one in a box in my garage ready to go and there's no banjo in it -- they should include them but unless it's changed recently, they dont!
