Will a early e series head fit on a el motor?
The head is either from a EA/EB/ED.
Also will everything fit together like power pump bracket...etc?

afaik yes. However, you need to know whether it is a hybrid motor or not, as the rocker ratios are different. If it's a hybrid motor, the AU head is actualy better.

I think you can put any E-Series head on any of the E-series blocks. Though if you go with hybrid you'd need the whole head with cam and rocker gears.

phong =P~

the early series heads had a much lower compression ratio (eg. EA was 8.8:1)
perfect for forced iduction :wink:
