1. Fit is pretty straight forward, make sure you get all your vaccum lines though.
2. you cannot use EA airbox.
3. Im almost sure throttle cable needs to be replaced, but someone who has one it will be able to say for sure
4. In the tech section you should do a search, there is lots of info there (you'll find that this thread will probably get moved there anyway)
5. you have to set up a RPM switch circuit to get the manifold to swap runners. Otherwise, most people jam it on long runners.
I dont think anyone has ever given power gains in terms of KW but most people are happy they did the conversion. Soxx, Bass Crazy and Walkinshaw would be the people to talk to, they have done this mod before.
EF/L thermostat housing+pipe (to use snorkel)
Throttle cable + rocker cover (or bracket to hold cable)
and a VVS to switch the runners
RMP switch in place of EF/L ecu
its an easy swap.
In EAI and II the AC pipe is in the way, but gently bending it down when installing the manafold is easy. No brackets neaded to be changed on my ex CFI motor.
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
Also I believe to get maximum benefit you may need to do a little inlet porting as the EF> have bigger ports than EA's. Another thing that simon mentioned to me was that the water pipes that go from the water pump round the back of the engine need to be changed to EF ones, not sure on this though...
