i need to know all the ins and outs,
electrical, mounting points, tranny,
and where to BUY the actual good, low mileage ej18
to throw in my car.
and i dont need to hear about how ej22 has more power.
i dont need THAT muchpower.
double my stock power is ENOUGH thank you.

can i use my original ea81 transmission? the d/r 4spd?
or i would gladly source a d/r 5spd. may as well
improve thetrans at the same time as the engine.

i m in the renton, wa area.

i ordered and paid for a nice full gasket set on EBAY
for my ea81. never showed up. bunch of BS.

Youll need the EJ-EA adapter plate, I believe its SJR that makes them... Username:Scott In Bellingham

I would start there.

There are many write-ups on the EJ swap too. Many that are VERY indepth. Ill see if I cant find a write-up for you...

write-up: http://www.numbchuxc...Files/EA2EJ.pdf

I pulled this from here:

My friend failed at going from EA82T-EJ22, basically wasted peoples time, but hope this write-up helps :)

Best of luck and keep us updated.
