N/A ea82 92 Loyale swap to ea82t! Help!
Posted 10 September 2013 - 02:07 AM
I've had my subi loyale 4wd wagon for years now and its getting to the 300k range soon. Then my head gasket went out on my ea82 non turbo.
So! I picked up a whole ea82t out of a 88 gl Wagon. Compete with motor harness, ECM, wiring to the dash, and down pipe for the turbo.
I know my crossmember must be modified to fit the turbo.
Im sure I must switch out my ECM, but can I just unplug my ECM and plug in the ECM for the turbo motor and use my existing wiring harness and connect the motors harness to it?
The harness that came with the motor is to an electronic dash and mine is the analog style.
I read that my fuel pump isn't powerful enough as it doesnt have enough psi. That I should get an inline pump.
But does that mean I need to remove my original fuel pump all together? Or can I do this down the road?
Has anybody reading this done this mod? Or known of someone doing this mod that has some pointers that could help a greenhorn conversion guy like me?
Any info is greatly appreciated, btw, I've been reading this forum for a while now and this is my first official post and I'm proud to be a part of this now!

You will have to swap the whole harness, or cut it doe=wn and rn it standalone. the pinouts for the dash can be rearranged to work with the analog dash.YOu will have to remove the driver side fender to feed the harness through

lots o work make harness stand alone change pump use a cis volkswagon remote pump or subaru turbo one bitt of wire harness mods and make xmember fitt try a 1/2 spacer under the motor mounts might give you enuff a bitt of hamering should give you the rest. Somone on here was selling a 2.2 with harness is way better way to go and makes more power

The ea82t may be novel, but if you install it you will want to keep it mostly stock with minor improvements(intercooler) but don't over boost it if you want to rely on it. It will be reliable in stock form so long as the cooling system is in good order.

There is one extra line on teh evap canister.
Otherwise fuel system is the same except Turbo MPFI cars have slightly larger supply line.
You can leave the fuel system as is.
HOnestly though this will be alot of work for not much improvement, and the turbo motor WILL crap out sometime, likely sooner than later.
Save up and do an EJ22 swap for the same work/time effort.
