Will Late '80's GL Wagon Take EA82?
Posted 09 October 2003 - 09:57 PM
It'll have to be rust free, though... I'm not going to deal with any more body rust that's any worse than surface. Unless something falls into my lap, whatever I find is probably going to be trashed engine or tranny wise (and half-way 'cross the country... haven't quite figured out how I'm going to find it, too ).
Now the Loyale I'm running right now has 220k miles on the engine, but she's not doing too badly. Question is: If I do manage to find a late 80's GL with an intact tranny & body, can I pull the EA82 out of the Loyale I have currently and put it in the GL, without too much difficulty?

Depending on the year, you may have to swap intake manifolds or something.. pretty easy.. easiest would be to find one that came with SPFI

it's a brumby, the Aussie version of the Brat.
The owner did a right nice camo job under the hood too.
nuff said? think so.
