NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the exhaust manifold wont match up from an ef or au to the ports of the ba head for starters, wouldnt be too hard to chase a standard ba turbo manifold or buying a decent snort set up

not really, the turbo manifold will need to be changed for one that suits the ba dohc, the pipework will need modifying to suit the ba, the intercooler can be made to fit as most e series intercoolers are just universal ones..

imo, probably best to start fresh or hunt down the factory ba turbo bits...

thats not entirely correct, the exhaustr port spacing between the sohc to dohc are the same, but the bolt patturn is different..

either way not really going to work..

because the amount of changes needed to go from a aftermarket e series turbo to fit it to ba is not worth it,
like i posted earlier, you need to change the turbo manifold, re make or modify the intercooler pipework, and due to having to use a ba manifold the e series dump pipe will not be able to be used or at a minimum will need to be cut and modified..

so in reality the only real usable parts are the turbo and intercooler..

if the turbo kit is really cheap then it may be practical..

you know you can buy aftermarket turbo kits to suit ba.....

While the port spacing is the same, the port shape is oval on the BARRA and round on the E Series.

This is why I can't use my Pacies off my EL donk on the BARRA when the conversion is done.

Cheers

Depends on turbo kit ??
If it has genuine Garrett turbo, injectors, fuel pump etc...
90% of pipe work is done..
Changing exhaust manifold and on selling the e series.. Done...
