Ah righto, good thing I put the question mark after it? :lol:

I thought the K-frames were different? Meh, maybe I'm insane.

Wouldn't you need all the V8 standard stuff in order to make it road legal? Isn't that the wayit works in the NSW parts of the mainland?



EB & ED the K frame / sub frame is v8 specific. Onwards???

V8 springs are designed to carry the heavier engine, but 6cyl springs would be better for drag racing, tho overall handling will suffer with 6cyl springs.

Boosters are the same right through to AUI.


Do you mean the v8 booster is the same right thru?

I have 2 v8 EB's & 1 I6 EB, the boosters are different! v8 is much larger, i think a double diaphram type.

No, EF/EL/AUI boosters are all the same in every model.


So they are all pissy plastic junk lol? That will make a later model v8 conversion a tad easier.

Yep, thats the one. The one that melts and cracks with any extractor heat.


Bit of a joke really, isn't it? I wonder if the older double diaphram type booster could be fit? (with custom lines I imagine)

Cheers

Has anyone here done something like this before?, if im going to have to start changing brakes, springs, dashboars clusters etc, than its way to much trouble, i thought it was simply, motor, box, tailshaft, and ECU,which i have a wiring loom waiting with an autronic computer.

Whats a K frame?

Thanks for all the replies....

PM a total tool, he has just done the conversion to his EL6. He used an AU8, that had been fitted to an EB. Brought the EBV8 and transferred everything over.

Brakes,k-fame and brake booster are all the same. The Dash will work without changing it, it gets its signals from the ECU, so yu would need a V8, the ECU, the engine bay loom and the auto. Not much else needs to be changed.
