hi guys my member name is shonky12 and i want to know i think i got the idea on putting the au 4.0l engine in a ed 4.0 l using ed ignition and manifolds but i really want to know if putting the au auto transmission in the ed is as siple as plugging it in the ed transmission control unit (just plugging the old transmission plugs back into the new one once unplugged from the old one).

the reason for asking that is oneday i want to upgrade the ed engine and transmission to the au but keeping the floor shift floor and stick in the ed original and the pwr econ switch original as well.

well for the au engine from what information i got you need a

au head and block

el/au alternator

el/au water pump

el/au power steering pump

xh ute belt tensioner

xh aircon bracket

xh or el aircon compressor

please correct me on engine parts if im wrong on any of it

i need a fully detailed guide on putting the au auto in a ed with the au engine keeping the auto floor and stick and pwr/econ switch and wiring and tcu original

From a lot of the posts I've read, an AU block with an EF or early EL head is the way to go. You'll need to get the sump or chassis modified though. The manifolds should bolt on without any problems. An easier solution is just get an early EL motor and swap the manifolds over. I'm looking at this option when my 3.9L dies.

so does the au alternator plug into the ed wiring harness and be as simple as upgrading the fuse maybe adding heavier wiring, i know the au accessories is the same as el

also with the au auto if i plug it straight into the ed tcu and ed wiring will the power/economy switch be down for power up for economy like it was for the ed auto

and also im enquiring about the cost of a au engine, el/xh aircon pump, xh ute tensioner a**/belt, xh aircon bracket

i want to know how much the au engine with 50,000-150,000kms prefrably around 50,000-100,000kms and what ever price for the engine does that engine come complete with accessories.

i dont need au manifolds as im putting it to a ed with original ed ign and manifolds but i do how ever want ed manifolds.

if it turns out the au engine comes with au manifolds im pulling it off and replacing it with ed manifolds both sides.

how much is a xh/el aircon pump, xh ute belt tensioner assembly/single belt/aircon bracket.

also how much is a el/xh distributor
