Hi guys
I have been offered an AU xr6 non VCT motor 130000 ks + tans & CPU $500,
My EF is getting tied so might do the conversion,
I have read about the sump or K frame mods needed & other small mods. + bell-housing swop on here
I have 4 question's:
1-should I replace EF cpu with Au xr6 CPU?
2-will trans fit without mods? tho nothing wrong with mine.
3- I'm running a wade 1636 in EF would there be any advantage installing that into Au xr6 ?
4- If so will shims be required number & size of shims ?

due to pick it up next week

any advice/guidance most appreciated
cheers

1) nope, use the ef ecu as au one is not a compatable ecu.
2) your trans will fit but best to get an au bellhousing..
3) the 1636 from the ef cannot be used in the au unless the ef rocker assembly is used due to different rocker ratio's..

i fitted au vct motor and box to my 94 ef wagon and is very easy, i ground the ridges off the front of the au sump so it was flush again and put 4 cuts on the sub frame seam but not the subframe to same width of the sump and just folded the seam over and tap in about 5-10mm and had 5mm clearance on the sump to crossmember. I had series 1 motor so changed knock senor over from ef motor,drop in the CAS and slightly adjusted the CAS lock bracket as it bolts up on the other side. I ran the au injectors on the ef intake as couple of vacum outlets differ and fitted ef xr6 computer for firmer shifts and abit better fuel/timing maps...

the au bellhousing needs to be bolted to the gearbox before fitting it to the engine..

but probably easier to put the engine and gearbox in together...
