I hear talk of many 'how to' threads for a EA82 5 speed tranny to D/R 5 speed swap but I can't find them. I find random htreads asking questions but never any how to's. Where might they be located? Link?

 

Thanks

You probably are having a hard time finding a "how to" for this because there really isn't anything more to it than a standard trans swap. Find an EA82 D/R 5 speed and just swap it in place of the trans you have. You will want the shifters, surrounding plastic, etc from the donor car. Pretty much everything else, clutch, clutch cable, axles, speedometer cable, driveline, etc all bolts right up.

 

If you have a 3.7 ratio trans in the car now as in EA82T or some other oddities then there may be other steps.  The rear end ratio in the car MUST match the trans you are swapping in. It's pretty easy.

Thanks. I guess all the write ups are for non-straight across swaps.

Unless it's a 2wd it's pretty straight forward.

 

If it's a 2wd you need all the rear end gear and make some mounts for the moustache bar ;)

Personally I'd also grab the flywheel and clutch setup from the donor vehicle just to be sure you've got everything you need - and avoid that disappointment when you've got it all together only to find that the clutch system doesn't work...

4wd non turbo to 4wd non turbo. Why would the clutch and fly wheel not mash? Were there different options or something?

Front axles were different between the two, 25 spline vs 23 spline on the non-turbo as I recall.

Sorry, I meant to say non-turbo to non-turbo. Is there a reason to replace the clutch other than convenience of being in there?

Sorry mate, you didn't specify 2wd or 4wd so I covered both. Not that it's relevant now but the 2wd clutch is different to the 4wd clutch in size of the disc and the gearbox input shaft.

I also couldn't tell you if it's the same between dual range 4wd or single range 4wd. From other's responses it seems that it is the same.

On top of the diff out put stub spline differences the turbo box also has the "dodgy" low range - 1.19:1 rather than the good L series low range of 1.59:1.
