86 GL-10 engine swap, possible to ditch the turbo?
Posted 24 October 2006 - 06:31 AM
any wiring harness / ecu issues?
For that matter, could I swap in an SPFI EA-82 into the car?
again, any wireing harness / ecu issues?
I'm having a hard time finding a good used EA-82 (MPFI w/turbo) engine, but I am finding lots of EA-82 (MPFI w/o turbo) engines
thanks in advance!

i know the wiring had some changes from 86-87 so if you wanted to swap the entire engine including the intake manifold that might have some issues. but you could probably just install your existing 86 wiring harness onto what ever engine you get....assuming all things equal of course MPFI for instance.
i had some issues with my 87.5 XT turbo to non-turbo engine swap but it was mostly due to the fact that the 87.5 XT is a rare engine among other things...
