anybody know if you can fit a 2.2 into the engine compartment of a '78 brat? haven't measured it out yet, but i am trying to get more power.....lots more. the brat had the 1600(1.6 L) in it to begin with....overhauled....looking for something newer and faster. thanks.

I don't know if it will fit, but I have a couple engines that I just got from the JY that I could measure.

I can tell you that they are a LOT heavier. I can lift and carry an EA81 (and probably your EA71), I can lift an EA82, but the EJ22 I can only lift under special circumstances (like paying $30 for all-you-can-lift at the JY!). It is almost twice as heavy as the EA81/71.

don't think it will go without cutting frame rails as a ea81 is pretty tight in a ea71 brat
