EA82 Carb to SPFI q's
Posted 03 April 2012 - 01:43 PM
Thing is, I've got Margaret (87 GL) up for sale in the classifieds. She doesn't seem to be garnering too much interest, and she does have a pretty straight body, so I've been thinking that perhaps this summer it is time to retire Ben (93 Loyale) instead. He is pretty beat up.
Margie only has 57,000 miles on the clock. Ben - 83k.
If Ben is to go, he is going minus his engine and transmission.
Also if Ben is to go, I would like to donate his SPFI to the GL.
From what I've read and what I know, there are a few factors here;
I'll need from Ben his;
So what I'm wondering about is whether there's a write-up somewhere that somebody knows about covering such a topic that I haven't been able to dig up thus far.
And does it seem like it's worth doing...
Two off topic random thoughts though:
On the GL the anti-backfire canister (Pass. side mount by vac. can.) has an open bottom. The car runs terribly *unless* I seal up that bottom of the can. (Have had a plastic bag rubber-banded around the bottom of it to seal it) When it's sealed, car runs fine.
Will 2wd rear shocks swap into the 4wd car?
Got some thinking to do about all of this. I really hate to lose Ben, but he's very mangled...
And I'd very much like to sell Margie, but he doesn't seem to be drawing much, so.
It is what it is.

Regarding the spfi swap,
You are a gentleman, and a scholar. Thank you for supplying me with that link. Reading through it now. Very very helpful!
After a quick read through, that guide is absolutely on point. It's awesome. Thanks again.

Yes, but it will Lower the Car around 2"
Due to the Fact that the 2WD Shock Absorbers has the Base for the Spring coil Welded Two inches Lower in their Body, than the 4WD ones.
But the rest is Identical.
