You will need to fit the AU timing case as the cam sensor for the AU is located in the timing case and not using the sensor like the EF in place of the Dizzy. You will also need to fit the EF alternator as the AU mounts differntly to the block than the EF. Use the AU Upper BBM as these are also different to the EF/EL, map sensor is mounted in the BBM, unlike the E series. If you are using the EF head, you will need to use the EF/EL Thermostat housing and extend the Temp Sensor wire, AU is mounted in the rear of the head. You will need to fit the AU Engine mount Blocks as well, AUI is similar to the EF, EF and AUI Coil are the same, if it is an AUII or III then you will need the AUII/III engine mount blocks as the Coil is different to the EF/AUI. Bellhousing bolt up is slightly different to the AU as well, so if you have an E series bellhousing, use that as well.
