So, I have everything I need to do an EJ18 swap into my Brat (that's getting the 4.444 D/R project trans).
A friend of mine has a '92 Loyale in good shape that he's offering to sell me for cheap.
I hate EA82s, so I'm thinking that will come out, but I don't really want to source and buy another EJ swap.
So I'm thinking, put the EJ18 in the Loyale, with my adapter and the S/R PT4WD trans would make for a sweet, fuel-efficient DD.
Then put the SPFI stuff on the low mileage jdm EA81 block that came with my brat, and put it in there with my 4.444 trans (EA82 front bellhousing, should bolt right to the EA81 block). That would be a sweet, reliable combination, great for the trails.
Thoughts? Also, my main question is how difficult it would be to take the stock loyale harness out, and split it into 2 functioning harnesses, one that could still run the loyale with the EJ swap, and the other for engine controls with the SPFI. Or would it be worth my dollars to source (ugh) a second loyale harness for one or the other.
