Question, would a BA engine in a EF shell be more economical than a BA engine in a BA shell? Isn't the EF lighter, so techinically it should get better fuel economy, even moreso than an EF engine in an EF shell?

Absolutely. Not only better economy but it would go MUCH harder.

The weight of the BA effectively takes 20rwkw off in comparison to a e-series.

I think you would be right there, so long as you drove it to the same power levels as you would in your ef.

Hmmm, I hope to do that one day. Would modifying the BA sump instead of the EF k-frame be the way to do legally?

Maybe. We modded one on a hilux once. Did an engine swap, but the bulges in the sump were at opposite ends with each. We cut the sumps in half and welded the bulge from one onto the top of another :P

the problem is with the e series is that there is very limited aftermarket parts avilable. which makes it harder to gain power. i think ive ask this quetion before but why is the car bad to drive with the power around 200rwkw? is it because of the big cam which gives it a bad idle?

To get that sort of power you have to push the power band up higher (because more rpm = more power if you can keep the torque the same). Doing this requires the opposite of what you want to make low down torque, so what you end up with is an engine that is gutless below 3500-4000 rpm and then a rush of power to 6500rpm or so. Since you spend most of your time driving <2500rpm you have a car with a very bad idle and a crappy power band.
