BA has oval exhaust ports, instead of the roudies the others have. So if getting extractors, need to get the right kind.

actually you are wrong the 4.0 i6 are very comon throught the seires even up to ba... just different s**t ie dizzy coil packs etc

the au head will fit on ea and vice versa
the ba head will fit on the early falco on head
BUT u need to change water pump, timming cover, power steering pump
the pullys as well i think
then u need to get the twin varible cam working
and the coil on plug working
no mean feat

EED250 that company is krogduhl (spelling ) heads it a twin cam twin plug head for ford 4.0's and the old holden 186/202's


they are not the same we have put them side by side to see if they will go on. not a chance. they are a fully revised motor. but i suppose give it time and you never know what will happen.
we do have a few BA motors available but the electroncs & security is going to be the hard thing to get around. we have sold 2 turbo motors 1 for a EL XR6 which runs a aftermarket computer and a manual (easy) the other is going into a cortina with a Auto and he will be wiring it up will the BA stuff (what a nightmare) this job will take a bit of nutting out i rekon.


I dont care what the rest of these guys post in theory, i belive what is written above seeing as it has been physically tried and tested and proved that the BA is a DIFFERENT motor completely, but I will concede that EA-AU is technically the same, BUT after the EL the exhaust ports changed so you need different exhaust if using the AU head.[/quote]

OK, so its obvious that the head is completly different, but that isnt a prob.
Will the head bolt onto the 3.9 block, and will the valves clear the pistons?
Or have they changed the stud pattern?

It could be easier than you think....to fit a ba6/t into an earlier model.
The BA6 can be run off an aftermarket ecu, all off a crank sensor, and the ecu can also run all the coil on plug [ LinkPlus ecu ]

You should be able to run VCT using a PWM output either from the ecu or a controller, as a function of engine load / rpm.

BTR box is controlled the same as earlier 4 speeds, so *should* be able to run off the std auto ecu from an ea or eb/d V8. You wont have all the adaptive shift, or tiptronic style shifts, but it depends if you really want all that or not..
