you will need a EF/L A/C pump, p/steer pump, alternator, harmonic balancer, tensioner, water pump. you cannot use the existing ones

+1

Yes do the BBM as well unless you can get your hands on an XH Belt Tensioner which I doubt as you need to use it to clear the log manifold

you will also need a EF/EL/AU timing case cover .. just by a AU motor or even a EF/EL motor, but easier ... so +1 for that idea..

Also, if you do the serp on your EA, replaced the timing chain guides,

But above, it will cost you MORE than a new motor.
