EBII are the same box, EA and EB1 have a lower first ratio. Will bolt up OK assuming you have all the bits (flywheel clutch ...) But the pedal box is different.

definately will :)

sorry to hijack thread but...
i know that AU boxes have a different bell housing but an E series one will mount up to the box, i know the selector/shifter shaft housing is a different length (cant remember if it was longer or shorter)
but is it possible to swap the selector shaft and housing of the E series and onto an AU box? so the gearing and basic "new-ness"(haha i need a thesaurus..) of the AU box is in an E series?

AU is longer by around 50mm and the output shaft must be longer as well.

Don't forget that EL XR6s also have a lower 1st gear in the manual box. 8-)
