I have a massive trouble finding a decent AEB, let alone an AJL long block. FYI, I'm building a motor with a goal of 350whp on a dyno dynamics dyno(aka the heart breaker dyno cause it reads low). I've got all the hardware to reach the numbers but need the motor to stay together.
I have a mate who's lending me his engine stand so I can put a used block and head and work from there.
Now, a good mate of mine has an auto APU short block lying at home and will give it to me for free.
Here's the dilemma. My ETKA shat itself and now Im not sure whether they share the same crank(spigot/pilot bearing), as the APU is an auto and mine is an AJL manual Quattro. I'm pretty sure everything else is the same but just unsure on that bit. Any further information is much appreciated.
Now, head talk. A mate of mine who owns a European car wrecking yard has a lot of ADR cylinder heads and will sell me for cheap. They look identical to an AJL/AEB but again, what worries me is little possible difference eg oil port/coolant port. Are they the same as the AJL/AEB?
Thanks in advance
