New Engine... Please HELP ME

Ok guys and gals i need to ask some help.

The engine in my EB has crapped itself and the crankshaft has some serious movement in it and its obvious i need a new donk. I want to stay with a six-pot so as to reduce any major problems. I do have a slight budget problem.

The question is What engine could i use?

Will i have problems putting an EF 4.0 litre in instead of the EB 3.9 litre?

I want to put in the best possible engine while i can do it easily

depends on money and what you want out of it really ....if it's just a daily thrasher then you are better off getting it rebuilt or as has been mentioned an EB 4.0 as it'll all just go in with less grief.

You can get a good secondhand EF motor from a wrecker for $700...

The EB4.0 got an 8 counterweight crank and the EF introduced the 12 counterweight. The best compromise in my opnion is a eb 8 counterweight as they were a lot smoother than the ea but the 12 counterweight was a fair bit heavier and lead to the motor being a little doughy down low

EA bottom end with the EB crank, EL head, if it'd fit that's what i'd do :s3:


Thanks

Re: New Engine... Please HELP ME

Bugger that, keep the EF manifold as it'll give you a hell of a lot more power! The plugs are the same except for the TPS.
