I don't know of any complete kit for them. I think you'll have to piece it together. Rings and bearings aren't cheap though. Have you contacted CCRinc in Colorado? They build Subaru engines to factory specs and ship to your door. They do short and long blocks.

CCR is cheaper than if you buy all the parts for a rebuild, or comparitave, and they come with a 3 year warranty!!
I'm getting one from them as we speak, and they can work with you to costomize as well

Apparently, although CCR does a great job, they will not do heavy customization - like decking the heads, or regrinding a cam... so it really depends on what you want. For a stock engine, CCR is the way to go since all the parts would cost you just as much, and the labor must be figured as well... They will do some customization - such as using pistons from other subaru engines that will fit (eg EA71 into EA81..).

just for others info... i got a quote on an ea82T from CCR for my RX... $1795/exchange+shipping

i know i can get parts and do it myself for alot less than that.. needless to say i didn't go that route..

you'll prolly have to check around various places nd get bearings here, rings there, etc..

I have rebuilt two of these. One SPFI and one Turbo. I can tell you that if you use the same quality parts as CCR, you will find that they have a very good price. Also, consider their generous warranty. The only reason to do it your self is for personal satisfaction. If you don't really enjoy doing this kind of work, you are in for one hell of a project. Some things like cleaning up all the parts of your old engine are very time consuming and downright suck doing. You will not save much money, if any, especially if your time is worth anything to you. Next time I will buy an engine.

As for finding a rebuild kit, I would suggest purchasing your parts from multiple sources rather than looking for a kit. All the info is here, try searching again. We have discussed it recently. I can point you towards a few threads where engine rebuild parts have been discussed. Try reading these threads first. Then try searching for stuff like "turbo rod bearings", "gaskets", "oil pump", etc. Or, you could search the older generation forum for my username.

Good luck.

well i really dont mind the work involved, in fact i like it, and my time is, well i have plenty of it.
ok ive searched a little more and i still havnt picked my route. but thats ok, i still need to gather some money up.
im thinkin that when the time comes ill just ask them and compare prices. thanks for all the info.

I'm in the middle of rebuilding a turbo motor myself. Let me first say that I totally agree on buying one from CCR. There price is great, especially if you wind up needing things machined.

Anyhow, when I went looking for the Bearings it turned out that just about all of the major manufacturers list the same bearings for every ea series motor, turbo or not. The bearings are in fact not the same. Read through the above thread and you'll understand more.

I'm getting ready to start one too, so we'll be going thru many of the same steps. I haven't even begun to look for rebuild parts.

I didn't know that CCR sold kits, but it makes sense that they would. They are great people to deal with.

Email me off the board and we'll compare notes

As far as I know CCR does not sell kits, only complete assembled engines, and shortblocks.

ok so is the leone? basically the same as the gl10 (same engine)? at power-auto-parts.com, the parts are good quality right? if so, good prices!
umm, is there anything else i should keep in mind when rebuilding? any ea82t "snags" that generally occur? any other info. if not thank you all, very helpful!

You can try H&M sales in Richmond Va. I bought a rebuild kit from them and it was very reasonable. Around three hundred if I remember correctly. The kit was one they pieced together for my needs. They are great people to work with.

i'll post a bit on the fun we've had with the projects Calebz, Okamiichibahn(and his Wife) and I have had with the EA82T's in our lives. Maybe even get the Guniness drinkin' rebuilder (wink) to chime in as well?
