i have been contemplating whether or not to put an EA82T into my 72' GSR, did subaru bring out a 2WD EA82T model? or how hard is it to convert the 4WD into front wheel? how much differrent would wiring, speedo, tacho etc be? would i be better off putting in an EA82 dash?

cheers

The EA82T is an MPFI Turbo and yes there are 2wd models. But it will be a very tight squeeze to get one in your 72, some cutting may be involved.

yea ive measured the engine bay and it wont fit.. i knew it wouldnt but i do have the capabilities to cut. i have decided to go with an EA71.. hot it up and turbo it... is there anyway i can inject it? if i put MPFI or SPFI in replacement of my carbi's on the manifold?

thanks again :)

Why not do an EA81 Turbo - would save you the headache of trying to turbo an EA71. If you did want to do the EA71 turbo, you would need some type of injection system, and a new manifold for it. Lowering the compression might be a good idea, or just run very light boost. The 71 isn't a whole lot smaller than the 81. The 82 is MUCH bigger due to it's overhead cams. There are 5 speed FWD tranny's all over the place that no one wants, and all you would have to do is figure out the axles.

yea if i could i would get an EA81T but they are hard done by over here in new zealand, hard to find and usualy thrashed. but i can get a hold of a total EA71 running gear complete, so im thinking of doing a complete swap.. maybe need to upgreade the brakes. how would i fuel inject it?

thanks mate

If you could find EA81T cylinder heads (I know, they're even hard to find here in the US) I think they'd fit on a EA71 block. They have the injector bosses needed for MPFI.

Otherwise, you could drill holes in the heads to mount fuel injectors. That's what I was going to do to my EA81 until I found a EA81T. I'm still going to be using CIS fuel injection though, because it's the easiest to install (in my opinion).

<a href="http://www.ramengines.com/" target="top">RAM Engines</a> sells EFI kits too. You might ask them for advice.

what is CIS fuel injection? i was thinking of using SPFI but im not sure if they came to new zealand or not, do u know of any other head other than the EA81T that would fit but would have allowences for MPFI? would SPFI work well on the original manifold?

thanks again:)
