I am building a ef motor for a turbo project and was just wondering if anyone knows the specifics on what is different about the 2 blocks.

Later EF's had the engine number stamped in front of the bell housing. EB's to early EF's are stamped under where the power steering sits.

EF's have a drilled and tapped hole for the knock sensor near cylinder 5, as well as having a drilled and tapped hole in front of where the cam syncroniser sits for the bracket that holds it down.

Otherwise, I do believe the blocks are exactly the same.

Not that I'm aware of, maybe someone can shed some light on it.

They are essentially the same blocks that have been used since the X-Series days.

T-Piece on the oil pressure swtich/sensor port on the passenger side of the block.

Or if your game enough, just run a hose straight from the port, not worrying about the oil sensors anymore. 8-)
