Hey I have a spare Au series on 4ltr engine and was thinking bout working it a bit and then putting it in my ef. I was wondering if the Au motor will go straight in without any hassles or will it need stuff changed for it to run?

instead of cutting the k frame you can modify the sump to fit

yes you can modify the au sump. it needs to be cut and welded but its another option instead if modifying the k frame

No as you are not modifying the subframe and not exceeding the power increase by 20%
