Re: AU XR8 motor in EB - whats involved?
This should be just a bolt in exercise. I can not see any reason why the au 302 will not fit into an EB. You will need to get an engine harness with the engine and the au ECU, but apart from that, all else in this sense is the same.
As for cost, i have no idea what one is worth. You could probably easy spend $5k on your current engine to get it up to the specs on an au xr motor, and i would doubt that it would cost that much for one. But if you wanting to go furthur with the engine, ie heads, stroker, cam, ........ You would have to rebuild the xr motor anyways, so you might as well keep your current engine.
