Yes, very big job. Put an AU in instead.

No, the front support on the K-Frame is in the way, note that forward and it will bolt in.

yes, so it isn't a bolt up engine. Also, the wiring loom is massively different. It can be DIY'd but not easy to do.

Whereas an AU engine will bolt straight up, dont have to move the K frame, just grind a bit off the sump, and I reckon using the EF accessories most of it would go straight up.

only in an EA-D, in an EF/L the sump needs to be cut or the K Frame modded
