Hmmm :D

I'd love to see AU irs and frontend in an EA-ED, really take advantage of that lighter weight.
Also, didn't FTG auto salvage drop a BA motor straight onto the AU K-Frame ;)
The possibilites...

AFAIK, the BA and AU frames are very similar, so the BA engine should drop straight in.

the ba motor will drop into an au frame.

how hard is the rear end to do, was it a bolt in job or was there welding involved? seems like it might be worthwhile.
