EA-71 3 door coupe?
Posted 06 January 2006 - 02:18 AM
Its called an "Omega" and apart from having the 1600 I can't tell it any different to any of the others.
Its an 89 anyway and I'm pretty sure its all original.
Round here its the only one coupe I've ever seen, apart from an RX on an internet auction a while back.
Its quiet zippy in the higher rev's, less low power than my Brat but definately faster I think.
ANyWay! I looked through the engine and model pages and couldn't see anything about a 1600 3 door coupe.
Anyone else heard of one?
Heres a few pictures anyway
Ha, can you guess which room is mine in the house!:-p

Edit: I think I've spelt the above phrase wrong. Ohh well.
And I Took some photos, loaded them onto the computer, which then died and now refuses to load past the boot screen. Agrh! f*in Compaq!
So umm yea, Ill work on it, maybe tomorrow or later tonight.....
But its definately an EA-71

Apart from that, our standard halogens are square, theirs are round, eh Skip?
Posted 06 January 2006 - 03:46 AM
Driving this thing makes me want an rx! Or just a faster Brat.....
Any other pictures needed?

Shined my carburetor up nicely

Yes I know most of this shape in NZ are EA82s - just curious though.
Am I right in saying most of this model they have in NZ are imported direct from Japan? Lucky sods if that is the case :-p

Good to see whats about and whats in different markets
Posted 06 January 2006 - 06:38 AM
well, the rumors I heard were that they assemble some cars here, but I don't know how true that is, because Subarus are assembled in Subaru factories. I don't know of any Subie factories in this corner of the world...
maybe the odd Chevron kit car, but hey

You want some stranger combinations, just look around in some (so called) third world countries. Ask the guy who sometimes comes on this board who lives in Israel. I've heard of, but never really seen one, an Impreza with an EJ15 in it. Some countries have a tax system that taxes cars based upon the cubic displacement of thier engines, I believe Italy is one of them, and they have combinations that are seen nowhere else.

An EJ15?? I have not even heard of that motor. Some of the EJ16s plod around Australia - I thought THAT was pushing the envelope in the power stakes. Having said that an EJ15 probably runs rings around my EA82
Posted 06 January 2006 - 04:05 PM
Don't get me wrong, I like my EA82 especially the sound.
Posted 06 January 2006 - 05:48 PM
Here's a place that sells bearings for an EJ15,
Here's one on a 1996 Impreza,

Now if this EA71 came fuel injected I'd be checking shipping.....and pounding my head thereafter.
Europeans don't get what we do,for the most part.And they get nifty little engines like 1300's and 1500's,etc.We should have those cars here too.
Posted 06 January 2006 - 10:51 PM
they also did some brumbys with ea82's as special orders and at least 1 ea82t ute also special order
a 1600 coupe for sale
