with whats included there youd need to do some modifying, the ribs on the front of the AU sump have to come off, and a lot of grinding to get your balancer on, but its not impossible

NO! I have been looking into this and grinding the front of the sump off weakens it. It may leak after a while apparantly. Talk to "twason" about this one, VERY knowlegable about AU engine conversions.

im using the ef sump, dont need to touch the k frame, you just have to have the rear bearing i think it is machined and it goes in piece of piss.

Modifying the k-frame is no biggie, plus the cast sump on the AU engine gives better block rigidity, not that much more, but every bit helps eh? :D
