This may not seem like news nowadays , but I built this engine in mid 04, I believe it to be one of the first US ones.
It was put into storage whilst I had some Alaskan adventures and now that I am back in the lower 48 , it has found a new home in my turbo BRAT. I have no idea what I am making for power, but its plenty adequate to rocket the brat along quite nicely .
Traction is a big issue in front wheel drive and in the wet in 4wd with the lsd , holy sideways batman
Anyone else got a quick ea82T? I have THE solution for head gaskets . Copper wire inserted into a groove machined around the cylinder bore that sticks up about 12 to 15 thousandths above the deck, Also known as O-ringing. I have aquired a nice heavy duty metal mill and have a small shop and am now taking requests. I intend to produce custom subaru goodies. Ej adapted flywheels, custom billet lift kits, porting, the works.
Let me know what Ideas you all have and I will see what I can do . I am in it for the fun not to get rich . Bear in mind this may mean a slow production rate at times.
Based in the SF bay area .
Brat pics soon as I get them uploaded, I have to create an account somewhere.
