EA81 cross member question
Posted 24 August 2010 - 04:21 AM
And if I would have an original EA81 turbo crossmember, would that clear the EJ uppipe?

Someone knows about the up pipe part
Posted 24 August 2010 - 11:32 AM
The EA81T x-member is already power steering with the lines on the left so they don't interfere with the turbo.

I will be using a single turbo EJ engine, which always has the uppipe in the same spot, LHD or RHD...
So the question is: did someone ever do an EJ turbo swap (Legacy EJ22T or Impreza WRX EJ205) on a EA81T and did he (she? LOL) ever run into clearance issues with the uppipe of the EJ-engine...

1. if the EA81T exhaust manifold and EA82T exhaust are equally wide, and
2. if that would mean that the dent for the uppipe on EA81T and EA82T subframes is in the same spot (measured from the center), then
3. if an EJ turbo uppipe clears the EA82T subframe, an EJ turbo pipe would also clear the EA81T subframe...
Or am I making a false assumption here?

Hey we drive on the right side (on all counts) of the road here...
Yeah, I know you guys drive on the same side as most of the rest of the planet:)
I will be using a single turbo EJ engine
That's the part I wanted to be sure of.
What's keeping you from running a custom one? With all this work, you may want to look into a catless 3" one to match a 3" exhaust if you're going through all the work. Unless, of course, the dent won't allow for it.

I'm pretty sure the EA81T crossmember will also work, as a member here was installing a EJ22T into a coupe at one time and had no issues.

The subframe has already been organised and shipping is not too bad so I'm very happy
