  1. Ordered a pair from that site. Thanks.
  2. I used Subaru Online Parts, they're typically my go to. I've gotten several ea81 parts from them in the past. I never go by application for these parts lol, I've got scans of the old parts books. I'll try that site tomorrow.
  3. Tried to order online and says they're not available. If my local dealer wasn't worthless I'd call them with the part numbers and try.

    I've got EJ25 EGR question

    Use the egr intake manifold and either drill and tap the head to route the pipe into it like stock. Or cut the egr pipe and plumb it into a source of filtered air.

    Ea81T auto to manual help please

    Any Subaru 5mt will fit in the ea81 auto tunnel with the mounts fabbed up. I have an ej awd 5mt in mine with no clearance problems at all.

    Look at the retrofitting section, thread named Retrofitting FAQ. I linked some inner cv's that will work with aftermarket ea81 axles to give you a 25 spline axle. I've confirmed fitment on several aftermarket axles, oems are hit or miss because of the different shaft sizes used.

    If they were the bolt head would have held the flywheel in place. It's no different than hogging out the holes on the ea flywheel to fit an ej crank. Nobody uses any sort of sleeve or spacer for them. I first used an ea82 flywheel on an ea81 about 20 years ago, no sleeves or spacers and it continued to be just fine for the following 10 years before the body was too far gone to keep on the road. If you use an ea82 dual range trans like you were talking about you won't have to change the axles. ea82t transmissions will require 25 spline inner joints.

    I've never had a problem with running just the flywheel bolts. But I also don't play around when it comes to torque specs.

    I've never used spacers for the flywheel bolts for this type setup.

    I've got the manual radius rod plates, transmission crossmember, and pedal box you will need in an 84 parts car if your interested. I'm a couple mountains north of you. You wouldn't really need any other drivetrain parts from an ea81 car if you're going to use an ea82 5mt. I also have a bunch of spare ea81t parts after ej swapping mine.
  11. You have to remove the pan. Just putting rtv on the outside would be like putting a bandaid on a gunshot.
  12. Most piston manufacturers will do custom spec pistons for a little more money.
  13. LH cam gear, crank gear, and intake manifold with wiring harness.
  14. That's what I came up with as well with, it's definitely not a combination I'd recommend running on a stock ecu. If it weren't for this going into an ea81 chassis I'd recommend going to 25d heads because the compression bump isn't as drastic. But that opens up another bag of fitment issues with the timing covers and frame rails.
