To put into an AU Falcon Forte.

It's only a 6cyl mont, not ghia so no leather seats.

Is there anything worth taking that would be better than what I've got in my series 1 AU Forte?

Sorry for such a dumb question, but I've heard of some Fairmonts coming with LSD's but I don't know whether it was an option or whatever, etc.

Thanks guys!

Unfortunately, if it is not a Ghia it is unlikely the EF has an LSD. In addition the diff from an EF is not the same width as the AU and therefore is not a bolt in replacement.

The Auto would change over, but that would be about it.

Many members here would consider an EF Fairmont a far superior car to an AU1 Forte.

I am one of those Members :mrgreen:

Like BenJ said, your out of luck with the Fairmont diff being LSD if it isnt Ghia spec. Standard Fairmonts did not come with them from the factory AFAIK, i for one know that my Fairmont isnt LSD equipped - yet. Ghia's did come with LSD, not sure if it was factory or optional though.
