Carb EA82 - EA82T conversion
Posted 24 January 2004 - 10:49 PM
but, i can't seem to find (despite using the search function) a definitive list of parts and potential problems involved with the aforementioned conversion.
I have a EA82 GL wagon with a weber on it, and have just purchased the following:
- EA82T with AFM, knock unit, loom and puter
- HD clutch
- RX gearbox
- EFI fuel pump and lines
- header pipes and 3" dump
i will need to modify or buy a turbo x member, as well as a new exhaust.
can anyone tell me more about what is involved in the swap?

Is the car currently an Auto or Manual.. that will add another list of parts...
Edit: one thing to add to the list.. Axles.. RX trans has 25 Spline Axles.. Auto and NA manual both have 23 spline.

i do have an electronic copy of the FSM on my puter.
do you know of any issues people have had that i maybe able avoid...
i didn't think this was a major conversion (compared to putting one in a MY wagon, or putting an EJ20T in a wagon), but hey, this is my first car and conversion....

How hard it is depends mostly on your skills and resources.
Not nearly as much work as putting an EJ in it though

could you be more specific in relation to the loom? the guy I am buying it all from is a electronics technician and is going wrap it up nicely and label it all for ease of installation.... have you done the conv?
i will have to stick the puter somewhere and find a hole in the firewall to put the wiring through... how much wiring actually has to go through the f/w?

The mounting points for the computer should be there on your carbed car , I believe.. directly above your knees when sitting in the drivers seat..
Most of the wiring harness runs through the drivers side fender.. in to the engine compartment through a hole about 2 inches around between the battery and the fusible links box..
Oh crap.. I just remembered.. you guys are all backwards down there on the bottom side of the world..
Chances are, take everything I just said and move it to the other side of the car
Sorry.. I am only familiar with USDM Soobs..

Please please please please pretty pretty please...tell me more and/or post a pic or a few of the header pipes and 3" dump....and if those can be found easily in AUS....
And check out this thread:

the 3" dump pipe was also a custom job. after the CAT it has 2.5" pipe and high flow muffler. i will be picking up the motor in a couple of weeks coz it is still in his RX. photos will follow....
I drove the RX that the motor is currently in yesterday morning. it pulls hard on stock boost, and revs out really well.
though compared to a webered EA82 with 290k km on the clock, ANYTHING revs and pulls hard...

i ended up pulling the mpfi motor out, ans sticking in a high comp. carbureted ea82. i will try it agian when it gets warm though.

the crank pulleys are different, the turbo had a built in dampener. but we used the carb blocls pulley, for one, the carb block had no damper, and for two, we caouldnt get the crank bolt off the turbo block!
so far we run 87 gas and stock 20-25 deg btdc timing, no pinkgs or detonation!!!
we also ported the heads a little too, and we blended in the valve reliefs on the carb's pistons
the only physival differences between the blocks, is the carb block does not have the pcv tubing hole on the top of the case. in this case we bypassed that with tsome 5/8 hose
heres some pics of our build.

Only one problem. Boost creep!!! I want it to stay at 10lbs but just keeps climbing, think it gets to around 18-20lbs. Gunna need a new motor soon at this rate. I have changed to a VF15R exhaust housing (bigger than standard) and built a new exhaust from turbo back. 60mm off turbine, 30mm off wastegate both joining into 90mm pipie after about 1 meter. Also, disconnected turbo pressure controller. Might have to make the wastegate bigger??? If i can't stop it, il just put in bigger injectors, rising fuel pressure regulator and a 5th injector. Great times. Probably still only 170 Hp.
