The AU's run the crossmember about an inch further back, and they wont line up with the E series chassis without a custom cross member. Steer clear of the AU stuff unless you have an AU. We learnt this the hard way when fitting an EF T5 to an AU, it was ugly buy has since been rectified.

Did you try using an ea manual cross member, they are a bit different offset to the ef one, might be the same story as the au one.
I used the ef crossmember from the auto on the ea manual t5. the manual wagon one was different.

Well if the extention housing is different, why not change the bugger?

They certainly aren't that difficult to do!
