Hey guys.

Im just about to put an EF 4.0l in my EA (which has got the 3.9L in it atm). just wondering with the t5 if im going to need to get a different bellhousing to suit the later engine. i think they have different bolt positioning or something? not too sure.

Im assuming ima need a new flywheel also.

anywho, anyone that can shed some light, that would be awesome.

cheers,
andrew.

the bolt patterns are the same from Ea to EL so it will fit

forgot to mention that you wont need a new flywheel either. i swapped my 4 litre to a 3.9 to fix up the 4 litre and it all went together
