You will have to use the ef box au box is slightly longer and try and use au bellhousing.

Ef box will bolt up but the bottom bolts don't go in. Still plenty of bolts to hold it though. I have AU motor with EB box behind it.

they miss out by a lot, the shape is different , its because the lower section of the au bellhousing bolts to the alloy sump, where e series just has 2 steel support bracket from the block to bellhousing...

no, because the au sump has those as part of the sump structure..
I guess you could cut away at it if you wanted to and run the e series bracket?

If you fit an AU Bellhousing with an EF/EL gearbox, everything will match up perfectly, this is the best way to do it.
