1987 GL Wagon 5 spd dual range, running what appears to be a stock ea82. I was wondering what other motors that tranmission is going to bolt to without mounting issues (durability is negligible). My thoughts were looking towards a newer 2.2 or 2.5. I find plenty of info about bellhousing bolt patterns and what not, but I've had more input gear problems than anything else swapping trannies around. Perhaps I should just do what "everyone" does and drop in a SBC and Turbo 350 with transfer case? LOL (not in a subaru, perhaps in a RX-7 though).

Man, wait until Caboobaroo sees your sig, he also has an 88 IROC 350 TPI, but I'll let him tell ya about it, it's pimp... I dig the 6.6L big block Trans Am :-)

The EJ series (EJ22, etc.. Legacy motors) won't bolt up to the stock tranny, but they can be put into the older bodies without too much trouble if you are good at fabrication and wiring (I've heard the only diff is the tranny crossmember..) however you can squeeze some more ponies out of those EA82s.. Are either of them Turbo? I've got an 87 Turbowagon that blows the socks offa most of the "rice" here in town ;-)

That's a negative on either one being a turbo. Still trying to get a title for one, which has kind of become a parts car with how much I bang up the suspension on the other one, and in general just beat the crap out of it. I've ripped the exhaust off 3 times and I'm on my 5th set of front tires in 5k miles. I also managed to need to replace the front drivers side suspension everything...control arm, that long brace that stops it from rocking back and forth (I actually bent that up pretty good on a landing one time, perhaps I'll make a web site here pretty quick and get some pics up). Um, as for the ea82 power, I'm looking at making this carb mod to the secondaries to make them open up sooner, I've already got a cherry bomb and punched out cat, the intake warmer thing hooked to the exhaust is all disconnected and what not. Not too much else I can do right yet, planning to get an accel coil/cap/rotor and some new plug wires soon. Some guy on ebay screwed me for the last set. I'll probably convert to a weber 32/36 (brand new). If there's anything else simple I can do, that'd be nice, otherwise beyond that I was just going to have the heads milled, port them, and have the cams reground, along with performing the lifter fix located here: http://homepage.powe..._lifter_fix.htm
