Not much is going to drop in. You could get a manifold made up to use the turbo but thats about it.

From memory, there are a lot of issues fitting a BA 6 into an EF. I know bonnet clearance is one of them. Can't remember the rest. Uglybob knows a little more about this.

You are better to get a custom manifold made up with a 3" exhaust and keep your crrent diff.

this thread has gone to s**t!

nothing will bolt directly up, im not sure how you would go with the gearbox if its a 5 speed it may do, but mods might have to be made to you current bell housing to get it in, plus then you will have to run a hydraulic clutch like the BA does (worthwhile mod IMO tho)

the motor will need a modified k fram and a modified bonnet to fit, the ba exhaust manifolds wont fit on earlier i6's the turbo is a turbo though will fit on any turbo exhaust manifold with the correct flange.

you can probably get teh diffe centre to fit, i dont think the centre will be a lot different to your current diff though 3.45:1 LSD so its pointless really.

anyway hope that helps more than the other canaries s**t happening here

Manifold and turbo should fit, although I agree with the recommendation to get your own aftermarket one that flows into a 3â€￾ exhaust.
I do not believe the gearbox and diff will fit.

Look at T5 “Zâ€￾ spec (Mal Wood in Qld) if your going up to 250rwkw. $2,200
Look at T56 6 speed (Mal Wood in Qld) if your going up to 600rwkw. $8,500

If I understood it wrong and you were talking the whole motor then the BA requires significant modification
and a lot of time, effort and money to make fit.
