Ok so with the increase in posts asking
"can an (insert EJ motor) be put into (insert EA body)"

I thought it would be good to compile a list of EJ swaps that way people can ask specific questions through PM.

Here goes:
Board Member: S'ko
Engine: OBD1 EJ18
Chassis: 1982 BRAT
Tranny: EA81 D/R 4spd
Other: 5 inch lift, 5 lug swap, EA82 crossmember for Powersteering
