Due to the recent problems with my motor I am replacing mine with an AU series 3 and was wondering if there are anyone out there who has done the conversion and can tell me the issues I will face. Points I am currently aware of are the subframe needs a modification but I don't know the extent. The EF computer is compatible if I use my existing wiring. The Alternator needs to be from the Au as does the Auto Bell housing.

Is this a VCT engine you have in mind? Mark from ITS Performance performed a non VCT conversion for me on my EF. Check him out, the entire build was both professional and high quality.

If you're talking V8s, it can be done but don't. :roll:

To answer both posts, it is a non VCT and I6. The VCT would be possible I imagine with the ECU and wiring from the VCT donar but in my case not worth it.

all u do is add the EF sump on the au motor! or attack the sump ribs of teh au motor with a angle grinder!

you wont have the sequetiona injection of the au but thats no worry!
other than that i think you are pretty much on the right track!

Thanks Disco Frank,
Could you or anyone else be able to supply a picture of the AU sump inplace on and EF, that would make it a bit easier as I could do it in one step rather than several if had an idea of where I needed to be prior to installing. I am leaning toward the subframe mod at the moment as I think removing the fins negates the benifit of the alloy sump. A picture of either would be appreciated.

TW.

you cant put a EF sump onto the AU motor
the AU has extra bolt up through the sump into the mains caps supposed to act like a girdle i would think.
im sure the motor bolts straight into a early e series so it cant need that much mod to get it into a EF.
when you pick the motor up we can sit it into a ef Kframe and have a look.

so in other words the ef sump will fit but the motor wont have the extra bolt into the mains cap?

a lot has to be taken off an EF kframe for the AU sump to fit
earlier eseries kframes only need a VERY small amount removed to clear the sump.

Contact ITS about it if they do it all the time? :)
