you cant do it!

the AU cam cant fit as where it sits on the head is a different size

im guessing you are trying to make use of the greater rocker ratio on the au's

that may be because when there changing there cams some are not changing there rocker gear over..

afaik
if you use a series cam with au rocker gear you will bend your valves..(or it may be the other way around)
if you fit a e series cam you need to fit the e series rockers aswell..
