I have a 86 Subaru GL FWD Hatchback with a 1600 engine rumored to be bad. I also have an 87 GL Turbo Wagon confirmed to be rusted to all get out. The 86 is a 4 Speed Manual the 87 I believe is a 5 Speed Pushbutton.

I want to put all I can inot the 86 3-Door Hatchback. So I guess the first question is about the engine. Is it an easy swap? Also what about the transmission? Thanks

I wouldn't say its easy, but its definitely doable if you want it bad enough.

Remember that if you use an EA82T in place of an EA71, you will need the whole ECU/wiring harness setup that goes with it.

So the 87 EA82T is a digital Dash, is that going to be a problem going into the 86? Thanks

you can get an analog dash for it, my rx has analog gauges.. i heard that the gauge cluster from a brat works with the ea82t harness.
