Is there any difference between the JDM ea71 and the version released here? THis would make an excellent replacement for my motor, as the miles are low.

However there were more options and different versions of JD cars - so I cannot say yes for sure - at most the difference would be in things like mounting brackets.

You're right - I know he has a top - center starter b/c he has a 1980 hatch - that engine won't bolt in b/c the starter is on the side - I wonder if the bellhousings are interchangeable? - I bet his intake manifold won't work either b/c the late EA71's used a wider one, like the EA81 and EA82 engines.
Is you EA71 pre-'79? The fittings on the Air injection is different.Also the starter is top center on the older ones.This one is off to the side like all other EA81 ans EA71 after 1980??Correct me on the year,please if I'm wrong.Brats with EA71 in 1980 and 81 I believe still use the top starter.

I don't know about intake ...

Fabricating something out of your intake would be VERY hard to do as there are coolant passages in it - a JY bolt-on is your easiest & most reasonable solution.

OK - I was not sure about the difference on the intake - I saw that tidbit posted on a member's webpage - the newer EA71 engines are rare enough on the east coast that I have never seen one
It's easy. The older version flywheel cover/ rear cover interchanges to ALL EA-71s. So does the intake. Just take the JDM down to the long block and rebuild with your stuff. I've done many!
I did think that the flywheel cover/bellhousing would swap, but I guess I am wrong
I wonder if he should not keep that in case he wants a 4WD D/R tranny - that would be a really sweet setup

I know it will bolt right up to the side-mounted starter bellhousing on that engine you are getting - I think the driveshafts for the front end should bolt-up too - I think you will have to grab the driveshaft (must be off a 4WD D/R hatchback) and probably the 4WD linkage/shift linkage as well - clutch setup may be different too - but it is possible, with relatively little difficulty - it you have your driveshaft shortened at a custom place, you may be able to put a 5 speed D/R in - better economy - whatever swap you do, make sure the rear diff ratios for the tranny you are putting is correct (same for both cars) you will need to swap the diff too if it is a difft ratio - probably best to just swap them both

I am going to document the whole process for a website that we are making for offroading ....
