changing gear box from four speed to fived speed
Posted 28 February 2005 - 04:44 AM
i have a subaru touring wagon 1983 model, with EA81 Flatfour. Now i need to know if i can fit a later model gear box to the 1983 motor. I have 15.5in rims, which are called "spitfires", fitted with 50series low profile tyres. i also intend on getting a new paint job, changing it from burgundy to a "Starmist" green. I also have a reconditioned motor (40,000 overbore) and have a VDO CD player with two sony explode 6in speakers and two 6x9in speakers in the back. Could anyone help me with my problem.

The problem you would have is the driveline. On the 5 speed you have several drivelines and you'd have to fabricate some mounts. The 4 speed you have has just the one solid driveline.
You may be able to use or modify (lenghten or shorten) the 4 sp driveline to work with the 5 sp tranny?
What year tranny are you looking to mount?
82 SubaruHummer--shortened driveline.
01 Forester--standard dirveline.
