Just change the bellhousing and you should be sweet.

BTR autos are the same e series to AU. The AU onwards T5 has a 50mm longer extension housing, that's why they are not compatible with earlier models.

Switch the AU bellhousing to the EB box and you are away. EB to AU are very similar, only slight internal changes, pump etc. All plugs fittings etc are the same all the way through.
