Well due to a few issues with my ED engine i have been looking into doing an engine conversion. I have access to tools and everything i need, just want to know which engine to get out of an EL or AU.
What i completely need for each?
With the au are all the hoses/wiring looms pretty much exactly the same?

Cheers with any help or anyones experiences.
The engine will most likely cop a few goodies internally aswell before it goes into the car.

the el would be easier as its a basic straight swap,,except you'll need to put a dizzy in it,,the au will fit but needs mods..

you basicly just need the motor and use all your old stuff,,easy
