hi, first off i love this site and the knowledge/experience here is good stuff. that being said i have some questions about clearing up some things bouncing around in my head. i have spent a good amount of time searching this stuff (and alot of other stuff too!) and still am a little foggy on some stuff. please do not let my lack of post #'s influence your response to my questions, i am very mechanical and have spent a good deal of time around subarus. i plan on building an on-road ea82 "fun" car. i have a tranny crossmember, rear control arms, and f/r sways all from an 88 xt6. this is how i'm starting my parts pile! i have read some stuff numbchux has documented very well and have a feeling about who will chime in here! i will be using an ej powerplant. i have done a couple ej swaps and have experience here. so, to the questions...
1. xt6 ft4wd vs. awd ej tranny? pros/cons? (adaptation is not an issue, i have that source)
2. for the 5 lug setup can i use all ej stuff? f/r? not too concerned about parking brake initially.
3. which axles would i use? (i'm assuming 25 spline ea82 for the front? not sure about the rear, maybe stock?)
in advance, i appreciate the feedback greatly. i apologize if i havent searched thoroughly enough yet! i do my best and so far any/everything i can think of has been answered here somewhere.(part of the low post # reason!) this is a huge resource for people, everything from lugnuts to 3rd gear synchros!
edit: thanks miles fox for answering some of this in another thread almost simultaneosly to this one starting! weird...
