hey guys and galz, i just got my subi last friday...i love it!

i have a white 1984 GL Wagon with the 1.8l naturally aspirated powerplant (the one with 100 ft lbs and about 85hp)

i was wondering what my 'insane' engine swap options are...tho i dont plan on doing anything to this wonderful classic 4WD until the crate engine with 4k miles on it blows up (50 years from now?)

:)

Welcome to the board!

Your in the right place for old Subies.

I'd leave the motor alone and just drive it...

However if you wanna swap motors an EJ22 comes to mind?

Good Luck,

*evil laugh* I have an '89 GL, how hard would it be to get an EJ22 in there? I can pick one up with very low miles on it for about US$300 :D

Welcome to the board!

Have an 84GL my self. Working on pulling the engine today and starting my AA 4" lift kit if the rains don't chase me off! Not that I need to pull the engine to get the lift on but as I'm doing the EJ22 trans plant and its coming out of there any way figured it might be easier that way. You can always pick up a second one to mod!
Again welcome, Stumpy
