Is anyone interested in ea82t heads? tig repair, rebuilt heads
Posted 25 January 2011 - 05:58 PM
I have 3 or 4 sets that I need to deal with, im not playing with that motor anymore.
I have some that are cracked and some not. If anyone wants em I will be welding up the cracked ones with my handy dandy tig!
I will be cleaning and inspecting them over the next week to see what I have to work with. pics and a fs thread are coming.
Sooo the question(s) is.. anyone interested or are they scrap!? Is anyone interested in having a set welded up? I can rebuild a set befor selling em, any interest there?
daft punk rocks.
that is all.

Cracked ones are fine, and you don't need to weld them up first. I'll be doing a heavy amount of that on my end anyway.

The tally so far. 1 head cut in half (haha) and one head(complete) with no cracks anywhere.
tycho, mind sharin what you are doin?

Are the cracks between the valves?
What other ea82 stuff do you have?
Posted 25 January 2011 - 09:48 PM
coupla beat up blocks, coupla good turbos and exhaust manis. intakes, odds and ends.
I am playing with ej stuff now if you want to do some trading let me know.
I would like to see these heads put to good use.

I was just thinking about it on the way into work today and no matter which route I go, I can make a exhaust stub that changes the new port to an EJ flange pattern so I can just use EJ headers (sectioned to fit obviously). This flange will allow me to equalize the runner lengths also, which makes the rest of the header design (be it turbo or NA) much much simpler. If that doesn't work I thought of another trick that will.
My theory is that un-siamese the exhaust side and running the appropriate diameter primaries to keep velocities up will massively increase scavenging which will have a very positive knock on effect for overall volumetric efficiency. We're talking a set of headers that would make an NA MPFI very close in power to a stock EA82T (without all the problems of the T or the weight of an EJ) I also think it would be cool to have an EA engine that doesn't have that broken unequal length Subaru sound. If it worked out, it'd be applicable to EA81 exhaust too.
I have some SPFI heads I can/will use for welding practice, but in the final application, the benefits are really only going to be realized on an MPFI engine that can breathe into the higher end of the rev range.

Was thinking of dropping that in the sedan, but the EA82T is way lighter, and the one I've put together is really running quite well. I think there are some little areas to unlock that will yield reasonable power gains and make the car run more reliably with better mileage at the same time, so why not give it a shot?
Plus I'm trying to talk a buddy of mine into building a Locost with the EG33 paired to a 5MT with an OBX diff stuffed in it for good measure. Surely that'd be a better use than a rusty '85 sedan.

I reckon the way to go would be to make an adapter for the bottom, with a splitter that extends up to the port divider and converts the 2" port to 2x 1.5" in the EJ pattern (as you mentioned). Unfortunately each heads divider casting seems to be unique (I have cut, drilled, chopped, opened about 7 EA82T heads) so the splitters would have to be individually fitted and gasket thickness allowed for.
Another option, which I also considered, is to cut a piece of 4mm Aluminium, fit it to the port divider and tack it in place with the tig at the flange face.
I considered doing this, as I just finished making some headers, but I decided to stay with single 2" pipes this time.
BTW, let me know how much you want for the heads, always looking for good ones, especially G3 ones...

With the 4 mm aluminum plate idea, I had that also. With the right torch, you could weld the whole thing in. With no cooling jacket I'm not sure how it would hold up over time tho. But with a D and reverse D at the flange (a bisected O) you could take two exhaust pipes of the right diameter, hammer the adjacent sides flat, and weld them into an EA82 flange. This'd give you a nice smooth transition in shape from the D to the O in the primaries without too much complication. Alternately, you could bisect a section of pipe with a bandsaw and weld a thin piece of plate in there to get the bisection ... then neck it down to say a 1.5" secondary where your bisection ends. Would be equivalent of a really short primary, but still worlds better.
Thanks again for the pics!

Have you(or anyone else) put your pics to work?
Im up to 4 heads now, The rest are on motors I cant get too yet.
3rights and one left. The L is in good shape, 1 caracked, 1 cracked and repaired and 1 uncracked.
I scratched at the crack abit to make it more visible. the repaired head looks like an epoxy type product?
Posted 07 February 2011 - 09:22 PM
Pulled my motors apart, 2 more rights and one more left in the good pile.
Hopefully some more head hacking threads to come...
