AU6 conversion, let the fun begin!

i picked up my AU engine today after work. its got 36000k's on it, and all up cost me $1250.
$950 for the engine, (with inlet-exhaust manifolds, throttle body, fuel rail/injectors etc), and $300 for the AU bellhousing, aircon pump, idler pulleys, au power steer pump, au alternator, and a few other small bits and peices.
tomorrow after work i'm pulling out the EB motor, and bolting in the new motor. i've given myself untill sunday evening to have the car driveable.
i'll take pics(and post them) of any mods i have to make, any problems i might come across, or anything i think might be of interest to anyone else wanting to do this conversion. stay tuned...... and wish me luck lol

Phil

Re: AU6 conversion, let the fun begin!

Hi,

So this AU engine is going into an EB? Oh yeah, bring it on! I have an EA that needs engine replacement so I am VERY interested in how this would work out. Pics too? - excellent

May the force be with you.

Re: AU6 conversion, let the fun begin!

Any questions guys .. any one needs just ask... Its a very good conversion when done...
Just watch the clearance to the front bar, a light grind on the engine and a litle slight hammer work and you should get enuf clearance.. Since youre using all the au pulleys and bolt ons you shouldnt run into to much trouble...


(you will need a different plug for the au alternator to)

Sounds fantastic mate, the more pics the better. :s5

Might I also suggest thermostatic fans if you don't already have them. Will be a very different beast to drive. :o)

Re: AU6 conversion, let the fun begin!

when its all finished you should write up a full tutorial which would include all probs and everything encountered, solutions, and things you needed and then get it made into a Sticky for future reference to anyone that wants to do it.

Can't imagine a clutch fan bolting onto the AU pump, nor can I imagine a AU belt fitting on an EB pulley

Have fun!

Re: AU6 conversion, let the fun begin!

Injected 250,
Would you care to shed a little more light on what grinding and hammer work is needed. Would it be better to cut and weld ???????

Monty V8 The very best of luck. Will be watching this very carefully. How about wiring ?

What computer will you use etc.

Again good luck.

Cheers

Clive
