The rear brakes should swap.
The front seats with some mods, the rear seat from ea82 will be too wide for ea81 use.
You could also use the F.I. of the ea82 on the ea81

So put the intake w/weber from the EA82 on the EA81 car. It should flow a little better than the EA81 intake anyways, you will have to use the rad hose off the EA82 too. You may also have to rig something for the throttle cable but it will be worth it.

No axles are different lenghts. If the ea82 is a non turbo 5 speed or 3 speed auto, the rear diff will be the same, the trannys will swap over too. Tires and rims obviously. You might be able to use alot of small things like bulbs, fuses, relays, switches dome light, hubs etc... But other than that not a whole lot else in the way of major stuff.
