If you go ahead with the conversion. Let us know what you think.

What is your EF? GLi? Futura?

Are there any mods to the motor?

with the advantage is u can get the engine rebuilt while having a runnign car

also the AU engine is a much strgonger base
stronger bottom end for more and longer high revs :)
