I have a 84 subaru and i just recived an 86 motor...(EA81 vs EA82) so its over head valve compared to over head cam....i was wondering if anyone has done this swap on here and if they had any problems with it bolting in....so far all ive had to do is switch the flywheel, pressure plate and clutch...my car is 4x4 and the new motor came from two wheel drive...the exhaust mani is the same size and fit...the tranny has same bolt pattern...so if anyone could get back to me. Im going to start this project real soon. Thank you
