EA82T to EA82C conversion
Posted 17 May 2006 - 12:16 AM
I'm thinking of pulling my carb'd EA82 out of my lifted wagon and dumping it in the RX for a few weeks. Lifted Wagon has a bad main bearing in the tranny. ticked all winter, now its ticking like mad and is starting to squeal.
Other than adding the Y pipe, and swapping the fuel pumps and adapting the fuel line what am I forgetting?
As for the wiring harness carb'ds got like 13 or 14 wires in the main bundle to the engine correct? i should be able to splice in the wires to make it run?
MilesFox I know you've done this conversion once in your life at least. Chime in plz.

I wouldn't know though, as I have never pulled an engine or a tranny in my life

The 4lo in a turbo tranny isnt low enough

Another reason for making the RX N/A is for reliability. I've already dumped a few hundred bucks in parts on this engine (rebuilding it once. heads were fine everything looked good) I figure its not costing me anything to put the entire carb'd engine/intake in there other than a few hose clamps and a spool of wire.
hehe old carby will still get my lifted wagon up to uncomfortable speeds. I miss being low to the ground. Especially with FT4WD

As for the fuel pressure regulator, it wouldnt blow the pump up having it restricted? Also how is it going to work with the fuel pump relay that fuel injected engines have?

I had the carb fuel pump sucking fuel through the FI pump, which was disconnected along with almost everything else.
Apart from that, i just made a little wiring loom between the points and coil.....changed the exhaust...that was about it, couldn't be easier.
No adverse effects from sucking fuel through the FI pump.

yeah i see what you are saying there. Soob fuel pump is just a rubber impeller isnt it? no diaphram or anything?
The FI one? Yeah i think so.
