OK...for those of us who know less than the rest of you, how large is that engine? horsepower? how difficult is this conversion? Any benefits other than more power? do mounts need to be changed? Thanks
(got an 85 Brat)

now my $0.02. if your going to go throught all that trouble, find a good EJ and put that in there. i think it would be an easyer swap

has anyone done this?
As per the pictures above, yes, its been done. I don't think so in a brat, so you might be the first, and theres no shame in that.

I knew about that brat, i don't know how it slipped my mind. Thats a nice brat too, and i remember, theres another one on the west coast too.
I guess Adams Brat slipped your mind too :-p
The HP rating for the ER27 is 145hp. Probably the most difficult engine to transplant into another Soob. Better off going with the EJ.

i disagree with reliability comments on the ER27. i've owned over 10 of them, regrease the timing pulleys, install new timing belt and water pump (all things you'd do to any engine including the EJ22) and it won't break down with proper maintenance. that being said it is more difficult to find a good condition ER27 because they are older and are more than likely to have been abused, maintained poorly, overheated, rotted out radiators that have run the motor hot, etc. if you're picking random motors, you'll have better luck finding a good EJ22 in that regard.
