T4 sump & oilpumps pick-up pipe (can use the windage-tray / gasket thingy aswell) also T4 dipstick & tube (need to drill cylinder-block) and T4 engine mount & the driveshaft bracket. With the power steering pump use the T4's pulleys / belt but the alternator / water pump crankshaft pulley should be same as AHU so choose the better oneJust a quick one do i need the oil sump and strainer from abl engine on ahu conversion. due to opposite mount angel.

although they both have the same power & torque so no big diference...Also in addition to another post 1Z and AHU engines are not quite the same, they differ in valve stem size(8mm vs 7mm thickness), valve springs (early had double springs, later single), pistons (early had Alcon, later Mahle) and injector pumps variations- early run low case pressure, latter have strengthening ribs and run much higher case pressure...also injector size but thats too small of a difference... Best go with a later engine if possible...
