if you do this way you will need an engineers certificate to make it legal.

AU xr6 motor - doubt you will be able to run the VCT version, probably have to stick with the HP one.

Hi Vince,
Read the sticky on engine retrofit at the top of this [the 6cyl] forum. There are also plenty of threads with pictures of the cut and shut AU sump mod around, even on E-bay. The talk is that it costs about $100 to have someone do it.
Troyman's doco is a good read too for anyone fitting an AU although you have all the EL bits already.
BTW the engine and diff are going great, used EL upper arms on the diff and it runs sweet, so far so good.
Cheers,
Paul

Yeah sounds about right, in VIC you cant even put a window sticker on legally without an engineers certificate or EPA test.....
