You will need to run the ED rocker gear with the ED cam. Any E-series cam will require E-series rocker gear while AU requires AU.

E Series and AU rocker gear have different ratios.

As phongus has said, you need to run the matching Cam/Rocker Gear.

No.

Use the E series rockers on the AU head with the Eseries cam.

Use AU Rockers with an AU Cam.

Same applies in reverse if fitting to a E Series Head.
