pull the cam sync sensor out and run the dizzy. Engine mounts are in the same spot. AU mounts are different to ED, but should bolt up. No an AU ECU isn't needed. Put new valve springs in, and I'd throw in a cam while the motor is out, the 220 cam is quite small.

is there any kind of mods that he can do to the orignal engine that would get him near the same power but for less money au xr8 engine sutup wouldnt be sheap i wouldnt think. and we had a guy tell us that by working your engin you shorten its life is this true, i would have thor if you put performance parts in a engine and drove it half sencable it would last longer. thanks
