EA82 parts swap into a EA81?

However. I think it would be a shame to see yet another rare turbo touring wagon go to the dogs simply because of a bad motor.

the full time 5spd will fit in the ea81 following the standard 5spd swap procedure. the rear discs will swap. the whole rear trailing arms will swap with gentle modification(read:swaybar)
the alternator will fit the same also.
the only issue about using the trans will be the 25 spline doj. if the doj will swap onto the ea81 axle, then its a go.
if you can cut and weld, you can relocate the ea82 lower control arm mount onto the ea81 crossmember, and use ea82 lowe control arm, and therefore use your ea82 turbo 25 spline axles. you can even use the whole ea82 strut/knuckle/brake if you modify the ea81 strut cap to fit the ea82 strut/spring assy
OR, you can simply put the ea81 carb motor into the touring wagon, if you want to keep driving it till you find a motor.
my opinion you should invest in tearing the turbo motor down and fixing(most likely the head gaskets) whats wrong with it. did it up and die or go out slowly? maybe it only busted a timing belt....

I still have all the parts needed to build another good motor and the RX that I was going to build it for is gone now.
if you want I can put it together and in for you for a verry reasonable price. I know I offered this before but its still here if you want it.
