Will a eseries cam go into an au and run without breaking things?
And before anybody gets their pantys in a twist I know that the ratios of the rocker ratios are different. But I'm just curios if the car would run.

im very sure the AU cam journals are physically larger.... even with earlier series rocker gear dont even bother it WONT work. Try putting an AU cam in an E series head it shouldnt even slot in.

it will definatly work, I have seen e series cams installed into AU's, just need to change the rocker gear at the same time you change the cam. Maintain the correct ratio for the cam, no issues.
