i have a 83 gl wagon and it has nooo power. i know the 81 engine was gutless to begin with so i guess my question is will it be enough motor to turn over 32s off my friends chevy.
I think you've just answered your own question right there in that first line...
Adding larger tyres is always going to stress the drive train more than the stock units - thus the weakest link is going to die first if it can't keep up, in this case it sounds like your EA81 won't turn those wheels the way you hope it will.
Either look into freshening up the engine (rebuild) with a sweet cam grind to match with a weber OR go the EJ route. I know the EJ and 27's goes alright over the stock 23's, but I think 32s would be an ask as well without playing around with gearbox diff ratios etc. An EJ AWD 3.7 ratio gearbox with 4.44 diffs swapped in would probably be the best way to go IMO.
The question is: How much time and effort do you really want to put into this?
