The top speed of an ea82 depends on the fuel system. My hitachi-carbed ea82 wouldn't do more than 75 before I started messing with it. At the peak of that engine's life, it could hit 95 with quite a lot of effort, but would cruise at 90 quite nicely. SPFI ea82s make more power, and a friend said he could do 110 or 115 in his.
Currently, my engine has horrible compression in one cylinder and won't go over 75 even with a weber carb. I expect that it will be comparable to an SPFI motor after it is rebuilt with high-compression pistons and polished ports.

RX 110....but it was on 3 cyl.

in its original car (86 carb'd GL 4WD wagon) the D/R tranny saw 108mph (on flat ground was topped out at 92-94 mph) coming down outta the Rockies into the NEvada desert floor on , ummm Highway 80 was it?
in the turbo wagon I have seem 102-104 mph on the short sprint to the observatory over the last 2 years I have done it 3 times. Just to see and I had some air space between the carpet and the pedal still, who knows where my limit is. I'm still 185 or 195 70 R 13's so there. I figure I might get to 120 or 122 maybe???? anyone else?

Seriously, you guys are scaring me with how slow some of your SPFIs seem to be. I had my 1985 EA-82 Carbed GL wagon with the 3 speed automatic up to 120! I even did it racing a 4cyl susuki swift! For the record, it was about a 10 mile stretch of flat straight road with nothing more than a traffic light that happened to be green.
88 RX was only ever up to about 100 (traffic Limited), but that car really pulls hard off the line and out of a corner. I've never tried to see how fast it would go.
Anyhow, Ricer really started with the crotch rocket moter cycles back in the 80s. The super fast street bikes were all coming from Asia, where rice is a staple in some diets. So, they started calling the little crotch rocket bikes rice eaters. Then it transformed into what we have now. All Show/No Go = Ricer

ricing is the act of adding all that junk onto the car...

heh guess this ole truck is faster than an STI muuahaha :moon:

In 21 years that is the highest recorded speed (never been to 75). Unless my wife secretly took it ricing---I mean racing.
It's just geared too low. (and I like it)
It works too hard at "high" speeds.
82 Hatch,...slow ride......
01 Forester, ....fast ride.....

The 97 L kicks in the speed cut at 115. Found out coming cown the hill with Tex in his RX.
Posted 19 November 2003 - 12:59 PM
havent tested it with the catless exhaust yet
Posted 19 November 2003 - 01:04 PM
Holy crap! What rpm were you turning at 120 in that thing? Is it 2wd or 4wd?
I guess maybe mine's always had not-so-good compression, but that it has gotten worse recently. In two months when she's rebuilt I'll find out though.:cool:
