is your car manual or auto?the bottom bolts wont because the au had a couple extra? this means you can get an au automatic bellhousing if your cars auto and swap the bellhousings if your worried about it but troyman has said he ran without an au bellhousing on his au motor and it was no problem

Thats correct, AU block/Bellhousing has a slightly different bolt pattern. Auto & Manual are the same, different from E series to AU. That is correct with Troyman, ran for a couple of years with no issue.

Ahh ok all good yeah doesn't seem to be leaking ATM had a bit of smoke first time I drove it from the catalytic but it's all good now doesn't seem to have any smoke. Assumed it was some left over spilt oil from the conversion.
