it will fit, but if you dont use a au bellhousing the 4 lower bolts on the au engine wont line up..
i ran mine without the 4 lower bolts for a year without any problems,

It's one of those parts that clowns won't sell for less than $300 like common V8 parts that are wrongly perceived as rare. Just use the Eb one and do as others here suggested.
