Why not just swap the whole motor?

Well if you want to change those things than that's really all that needs to be done, you will have to use your injectors, and swap your maf sensor onto the au housing. The TB you will need to put your TPS on to it, you need to cut the blade down about 2mm so the sensor fits than you will need to elongate the mounting holes in your's to achieve the correct tps voltage. There is a thread on here how to do that. The egr will be deleted so a few hoses will need to be blocked off
However, it would be better to change the whole motor as there will be more gain, You'll need injector adaptors, swap your original dizzy on to it and i think the harmonic balncer, than a tune at the end.

When i did it i went the gt40p heads, au inj but i went this way so i could slowly collect parts and also do some port work on the heads, but i wanted a bigger cam so i would of had to open the other motor anyway, probably worked out more expensive but i knew i had fully recco'd heads and got to check bottem end

Robby, looks like where in the same locations mate! :wink:

They are basically the same engine. You can use the standard wiring loom and ECU, Just get a tune once it's all in.
