I had the same problem with my old ed originally, it was fine, it blew the head gasket so I fitted a new head and within a day it was blowing huge amounts of smoke, especially just after start up..

is it as bad as this???

Thats f**k epic lol.

To the OP
Looks like it dude. Thats got to suck. Would have cost you less initially just replacing the whole engine.

Can be done but its not cheap to do it legally. I dont know SA laws with road worthy's i.e every year like NSW or just when you re-register or buy a car. I think the sump or crossmember needs to be altered for the Au engine to fit

an au engine is almost a direct fit, no big sump mods like when fitting one to ef or el.

but if your not keen on modifying a few things to fit the au engine go for a el engine and fit all the accessories from the eb motor, manifold, front pullies, power steer pump, alt, water pump and ac pump.
