hi
ef/el engines are the easiest to put into the ed..
but with a little extra you can just as easy put an au engine in..
and considering your planning on supercharging late?r go the au engine!!

EL, the computer and loom are more compatible.

Rip the head off the new one and do some work to it out of the car. makes life real easy. at least then you'll know the gasket and other things will be fine

the au engine has a bit more torque, revs alot smoother and likes to rev higher than the old ed engine
the au xr6 engine cost me $600 with 98.000km..
the rest i did my self..
its running the ed engine mounts, slightly modified ed manifold wiring loom, el bbm (was running el ecu) and el serpentine,aircon pump,radiator and thermo fans ect..which i already had on another engine that was in my other car..
