Au six into pre smartlock EB2
Yesterday whilst servicing my EB2 I was listening to the motor, and heard what I thought was tappetts.
Under the car it was alot louder, especially under the inlet manifold. It increases with engine speed, and at idle the noise is consistent with a slight stumble of the motor.
So my questions to the group are:
1. What is it?
2. If I have to rebuild the motor, I'm thinking of putting in an AU six, for around 950, which includes the computer and loom. (sell the old motor and recoup some money)
3. What mods have to be done to the EB crossmember to make it fit?
4. For those in SA, does it have to go through Regency?
5. If I install the AU engine harness, then what about smartlock/smartshield input into the EEC V? Will I get around it given that My EB@ is pre smartlock?
