The execution order is the order of the TypoScript so if you can 
reorder it in a way that Plugin X is declared before the other one in 
TypoScript it might work. If they are both inserted as content in the 
same content collection after one another that will not be possible. 
The ContentCollection is rendered in order as everything else. It will 
probably be very hard. I would probably try to do that differently. You 
shouldn't rely on the order of two plugins. Rather build either one 
plugin from it or call plugin Y in an ajax request.
