I don't know about it fitting but on the e series xr's they had the tickford eagle on the front where the timing chain goes thru 8-)

i'm pretty sure that is an el motor. au's had a squarer looking rocker cover i think. not sure if the au's got painted either.

getting back to your question. an au hp head should bolt up but a vct one maybe not. not sure on either statements though.

An AU XR6 head will fit on a EF. Need to use AU rocker gear and cam though.

Easiest way to tell if its an AU head is to check the temp sender location.
AU's have a temp sender mounted in the back of the head.
Can't an AU head be used with E series cam and matching rocker gear???
I remember reading about someone on here that fitted a Crow cam to their late EL hybrid. Ordered the wrong cam, so they changed the rocker gear to match the cam.
