One thing about Turbo Distributors. In 85/86, the distributors were vacuum advanced. In 87, then switched to the optical disty.


86 SPFI disty has no vac can either. It's also the same disty as the later turbo's. All the CAS disty's are interchangeable between SPFI, MPFI and Turbo MPFI.

I recently was looking at an mpfi 1988 turbo wagon. It is not the spider intake, but it was called mpfi. Looked like two spfi intakes, twinned, morphed together. What exactly was that called? I didn't see four injectors, unless there was some, and I didn't spot them.Here is another thing I noticed: My 87 DL had an oem all metal radiator, the loyales have plastic sides,that must have been changed somewhere along the line. The Loyales lack of guages is luckier than my complaints :)

All Turbos have MPFI. The four injectors were there, you just didn't look hard enough.

Also, I beleive that some early model EA82s had plastic end tanks as well on their radiators (my 88 does, but of course your 87 was younger). It wasn't needed, because the thermo switch didn't ground through the radiator anymore.

This is an Old Thread but it Worth to be completed ... I Have some info to Add, so let me Start Saying that I Believe that the Well done Chart made by TROGDOR! is Based on the Subaru Models for the USDM Market only.

 

 

This is a great load of information.. Pitty half of it is incorrect for Australia :lol: ...

 

Since the Same Situation is for LADM (Latin American Domestic Market) / Asian \ European Specs Subies, I Want to Add some more info regarding those Models, as they came for the Non-USA Markets, in Order to Help to Complete this Chart.

I Will Name the Car Model as "Loyale" for Easy Reference and Understanding, even if it was Named Also Leone
(Gen III), Omega, GL, GT, DL, GTi, RS, RX, ST, or even Isuzu Gemminett II

 

... :eek: ...

(Rebadged)

IsuzuGeminettIISubaruLoyale4.jpg
...

 

So, About This:

 

...
1985:
-EA82 sedan and wagon introduced...

 

The EA82 was introduced in Japan as Prototype in 1981 and Went into Production Since 1984, Called Leone (Gen III).

 

 

See this Picture, Taken from the Subaru Worldwide Website:

Loyalein1981.jpg
 

...

 

...
-All nonturbo models equipped with EA82 carb engines, EXCEPT:
-2WD GL-10 models equipped with EA82 MPFI engine (same as XT)...

 

For the Asian / Latin American \ other Markets, The "Loyale" came with this Engines:

EA65 Engine 1.3L
(Standard "DL" 2WD sedans) and EA71 Engine 1.6L (Luxury "GL" 2WD)

in Example, see this 1.3L Loyale Sedan: 


Subaru13DL2.jpg

 


Subaru13DL4.jpg
...

The 1.8L were available in EA81 (Standard "DL" 4WD) and EA82 (Luxury "GL" 4WD) ... I Know that few Early 1985 Loyales went to the USA with Factory Mounted EA81 engines, as far as I remember, General Disorder saw one of those.

As Aditional info, let me Tell you that in our Markets are Available the 1.5L and 1.6L Engined Imprezas
(EJ15 for basic, manual trans Model and EJ16 for basic auto trans model) also the 1.8L ...

 

in example, see this Pic:

SubaruImpreza1.5LEJ15.jpg

Also, I Took This Photo with my Cellphone, sometime Ago,

 

Those are Local (Honduran) Subies:

IMG0445A.jpg
...

 

...1985.5:
-Mirrors move from below window to sail panel (in front of window)...

 

Because The Original "Loyale" Design -for JDM- Had the Mirrors Mounted in the Front Fenders, Not on the Doors ... So when they came available Outside Japan, they Had to "Add On" those Mirrors to the Doors ... Then they Upgraded the Design.

 

 

...1987: ...
-4 Speed Electronic Automatic Transmission (4EAT) introduced ...

 

That Transmission is Subaru Made but based in a JATCO design / license (Japan Automatic Transmissions Co.) and was also Used by Nissan in Early Pathfinders; it Also Came in Legacies, imprezas and with design variations, in Mazdas, Fords (Known as F-4EAT) and certain Kias, such like Sephia / Spectra.

 

 

...1987: ...
-Yellow area on front sidemarkers is smaller ...

 

There are some Different Designs for that Yellow area in the Front Sidemarkers, as Long as I have Seen, these are the basic differences:

  • The ones with Flat Big Yellow Area,
  • The ones with Non-Flat Big Yellow Area, that area comes Outside Angled.
  • The White ones with Small Outside Angled Yellow Area, in transparent base.

Usually, the Second ones are found in the DL Models that Came with Four Small Headlamps, instead of the Two Sealed Headlights and those Won't fit the Other Model's Mounting Place for the Screws at the Headlamps' Hardware.

 

 

...1988:
-Carb engine dropped ...

 

Again: Just for the USA Market.

We got Here, in the Latin American
Domestic Market (LADM) and other world's areas, Carbureted late Models of EA82 up to 1994, and Even Newer EJ Engines did Came with Carb & Disty too, from 1989 to 1994. (Legacy was introduced in 1989), as extra information, the Subaru Brat was available 'till 1994.  :) 

 

 

in Example: See the Pictures I Took from a EJ Engined Subie (1993 Legacy) I Repaired once:

 


EJ22Carbed.gif
...

I Hope that info will Help to Update the Chart. :)

For Additional info about Rebadged Subarus and much More, See
~► Here.

 

 

...1992:
-PCV retrofit introduced to prevent smoking on right turns ...

 

Yep, here's the complete info on the Subject:

Kind Regards.

Not all Loyales had power windows. They were not "standard"

also the 4EAT was not used until 88, with the exception of XT's (which are not supposed to be part of this list.

Corner lights changed in 87.


Also, 87 4wd carbed used a Denso distributor. 85,86 are Hitachi

Yes, those were the Basic "DL" Models. The Same for Legacies and imprezas in our Markets.

1990:
-Painted bumpers, chrome stripe in side cladding, wagon rear trim beside back window no longer available
-Power windows, locks, and mirrors become standard
-Automatic seatbelts and high-rise console become standard
-Factory tire size changes to 165/80/13

[/size]


My (1990 Loyale RS) came with color matched, painted bumpers
my side cladding has a gold in lay like an RX (?) don't know if that counts as 'chrome', it's plastic
the mirrors were not powered
it has 'normal' seat belts
the factory tire size is 185/70/13, 195/70/13 is an optional 'approved' size

but, really, that's a bit of an oddball car... and may not be what was going on in the bigger picture

cool list - btw

Indeed. I agree with you that the Loyal RS model was an attempt to cash in on remaining stock of certain RX/GL Coupe Parts. Resulting in oddball combinations. Was a standard Loyal coupe even available that year?

Yours is the only one I've ever even seen pictures of, let alone seeing one in person.

It is a sharp car, look forward to seeing it at WCSS

Loyales are oddballs to say the least.

And the spare under the hood stopped with the end of the EA series cars.
There isn't enough room under the hood of an EJ car (legacy/impreza) to fit
a spare.

Hey JesZek, can you ship me one of those extra tall EA81 wagons?
I'll pay for shipping :-p (just kidding)
Those are really cool.

Oh, and I think there should be a differentiation between the Hatch and the
sedan/wagon/coupe.
The hatch was a different body style, engine and transmission.

Yep. Time for an update?

 

Let me post a summary of the Basic changes in the Third Generation 

of the Subaru Leone, also known as EA82, Loyale, etc,

which was made since 1984 up to 1994...

 

10708626_780101202035910_698366771486427

 

 

... during all that Decade, featured three different "Editions" with overal changes between them, despite their Trim Level or the optional equipment. Let me explain the Main / More Noticeable Changes among the Three Editions of the EA82, beside other diferences:

 

 

 Early Edition(1984 ~ 1986)

 

─ The Grille was Checkered, and mounted directly to the Head Lamps' frames.

─ The Head Lamps / Dimmer combo Switch, came mounted on the Dashboard's left side.

─ The Wiper / Washer combo switch, also came on the Dashboard's right side.

─ The Stereo's Antenna was a Short, Fixed tipe.

─ The Side rear view Mirrors on each door, came mounted "Sticking Out" 

   Below the Windownon touching it.

─ The instrument Clusters and Dashboard Buttons had a slight Amber / Yellow tint.

─ The A/C condenser Fan, was activated by a Pressure Switch on the A/C Line,

   after the Relay switches.

─ The GL Wagons, had rear windows "Glued"  to the Body, on the Cargo Area.

─ The DL Wagons, had rear windows mounted with a Rubber on the Cargo Area.

─ The manual "Adjustable Height" Struts were usual,

   while Electro Pneumatic Suspension was Optional on the GL10 Models.

─ Some markets got the option of an "Adjustable Height" Hydraulic suspension.

─ The Early EA82 engines, came with the first gen EA82 Heads.

 

 

 Middle Edition(1987 ~ 1990)

 

─ The Grille had horizontal lines, and mounted directly to the radiator backing frame

   on the Body, instead to the Head Lamps' frames.

─ The Head Lamps Switch, came on a Stick on the Steering Column.

─ The Dimmer swich was moved to a vertical rotating one, on the Dashboard.

─ The Hazard lights' switch, was moved from behind the Steering Wheel, to the Dashboard.

─ The Wiper / Washer combo switch, also was moved to another stick on the Steering Column.

─ The Stereo's Antenna was extendable.

─ The Side rear view Mirrors on each door, came mounted touching the Window's glass.

─ The instrument Clusters and Dashboard Buttons had Green tint.

─ The A/C condenser Fan, was activated directly by the existent Relay Switches,

   bypassing the pressure switch. (in fact, subaru sold a small rewiring kit to bypass that pressure switch on older models).

─ The manual "Adjustable Height" struts disappeared, Subaru used "Standard" struts,

   Electro Pneumatic Suspension continued to be Optional for the GL10 models.

─ The option of an "Adjustable Height" Hydraulic suspension disappeared also.

─ The first appareance of the "Virgin Switch" on top, Behind the Steering Wheel.

─ The Middle edition EA82 engines, came with the second gen EA82 Heads.

 

 

 Last Edition(1990 ~ 1994) also known as "Loyale"

 

─ The Metallic housing Head Lamps were changed elsewhere except in USDM,

   with Plastic Housing ones.

─ 1990 was the last year for EA82 Turbo.

─ 1992 was last year for EA82 Sedans.

─ The GL trim body with glued cargo area windows, disappeared.

   All Loyale wagons were DL trim body.

─ The Electro-Pneumatic suspension, disappeared, along almost all luxury options.

─ The factory sold via Subaru Dealers only, improved third gen EA82 Heads,

   which never came installed from Factory.

─ The door handles came in Black colour, instead of Chromed,

   elsewhere except in USDM.

 

Remember, as usual in my posts, underlined words are web links with further information on the Subject.

 

Kind regards.

I'll pay for shipping...

 

Shipping from Honduras to USA is doable, but could be Expensive... 

 

Other forum members asked me for Dual Range EJ Transmissions and Carbureted EJ Engines,

 

But is easier to send 'em the whole Car instead...

 

Kind Regards.
