Mate, it will cost you about 7 grand drive in drive out at a place in Melbourne. There is a thread here somewhere.

The issue is not installing the engine, it will bolt in fairly easily. It is in making it run like it should. The electronics are not simple.

Another member spent well over 10g putting one in his EL Monty.

Trust me. If it was a financially viable option, just about every e series car here would have the BA/BF engine in them.

might as well chuck in an AU motor, pretty straight forwards and you can use most of your existing stuff!

imo the easiest way would to fit the ba engine as you would an au engine..
but run the e series throttle body, aftermarket ecu, au coil pack and leads, get a set of dohc vernea gears to lock the cams and your good to go...
the dohc vct is really only good for emissions and low rpm economy..

ive seen a dohc set up this way and it was still making great power without all the technical s**t... it was a std ba xr6t engine running as above and made 270rwkw on 9psi..
if i was to go with the dohc engine i would do it this way...

Just get an AU engine and Turbo it. Its cheaper and easier for E-Series application. If you can do the work yourself, should get it done properly for 4k.

The BA XR6T's are under 200rwkw.
