220k EA82T engine rebuild?
Posted 18 September 2003 - 09:46 PM
I'm OK with inspecting and perhaps replacing internals, but i'd like some opinions about using the block and rods and stuff as they're kind of high miles for a turbo, and it would be less work than shopping for a better EA82T engine first. I have some OK looking gen 3 heads I scored at they PY that would go on whatever I build.
Plus, if I start from scratch, I'd like an SPFI block for better compression .. won't that be nice under my garaged spider intake! finally got all the parts for the swap
So I need to decide what to shop for and everything.. any help? thanks

If the engine you are considering rebuilding is in your car, running, then keep driving it and build another one.. Find a low mile SPFI block and go to town

The list could go on forever. How simple or complex/expensive do you want to go?

I don't want to go too expensive, really, as I'd rather sink serious bucks - assuming I had them - into a WRX engine swap.
But I think for peace of mind I'll need to replace the engine sooner than the actual upgrade will be possible.
Although I could probably sell a hotted-up EA82T to someone here for a reasonable price..
so as far as cost is concerned, the engine I already have is cheaper since I already have it.
