To use the ea81 you'll have to find a matching ea81 4wd tranny.

But there is some infor from some pretty smart cats about parts mixing and matching.
BTW - my brother lives in yelm. His woman owns a smoothie stand or something like that out there.

if you find a gen 2 ea71 (fat case engine) from a 1600 dl hatch or standard hatch (1983-4 or newer) they have the ea71 block that matches ea81 physiucal dimensions, if you find this motor you can swap on your old bellhousing to fit on the new motor.
Is a gen 2 ea71 what I have now in my 1980 gl hatch? I'm really new. Sounds like your giving me some good info but I aint understanding it. Can you explain it a little more? Thanks.

You will need to use the front part of the exhaust for the ea81 motor. They are slightly wider than the ea71...

Also, make sure you get the correct clutch, the 84 will have a 225mm disk where as the 80 has a 200mm.
When doing the swap, it is also a great time to make sure all the mounts are in good shape for the engine and transmission. The ea81 trannies fail more often because of crappy mounts. Aftermarket transmission mounts are difficult to come by, but General Disorder has a good solution for this... http://home.comcast....eed_mounts.html

Im really fond of the '80. I orderd the clutch. $159 at schucks and got some gaskets too. They'll be here on the 17th. Gives me a couple days to clean stuff up and get ready.

Something about that just screams at me... Telling me run away...
I'd go with the '80 as well, take all the good stuff from the 84 and send it packing.
