au bottom ends are better, heads are about even, ticky heads have the 41mm exhaust valve but so does the au. cams are different, but ticky cams are very minimal different

If you need a replacement engine, I would just go the wreckers and get a low km AU engine.

Most large wreckers will do the engine coversion for you. I remember on ebay a wrecker was selling converted AU falcon engines with modified sumps so they would clear the crossmember on e-series falcons.
