you may be better off in the retrofit forum with this question.

the bolt pattern on the gearbox is different for a start, dont know of anyone who makes a conversion for that particular switch -funny cause you can get a conversion kit to put a EA81 in a VW or a EA82 in a VW!

Why not just get the EA81 rebuilt -some say they are a better engine enyway!:headbang:

Actually, depending on the year of Brat, the EA82T will bolt directly up to an EA81 gearbox with a different clutch/flywheel setup. If you do decide to go with an EA82T, might as well swap in a 5-speed also because the 4-speed can handle power, but the gearing sucks! Yes, the EA82T will drop directly into an EA81 Brat (generation 2) without any modifications. I know someone who dropped an EA82T and a push button 4wd 5-speed into a generation 1 Brat and that thing hauled!:headbang:
