    Car Cover links

    I ended up going with this one: https://www.carcover.com/silver-shield-3l-car-cover-for-subaru-brat-1982-regular-cab-pickup-2-door-short-bed.html Thanks for the help though! I wanted to do the canvas route but I am in a bit of a time crunch so wouldn't be able to get it waterproofed in time. But I think the one should do the job, I will let you guys know how it fits (which was my main concern).
  2. Hey everyone! For the interim my 82 brat will need to be stored outside in the sun for a few months and I would like to get a decent car cover for it... however there are not a lot of vendors online that sell brat car covers lol. I got a generic "small" car one before and it was trash, has anyone bought a good one that fits properly that they can drop me a link to? Thanks a bunch!!

    EA to EJ temp question

    Thanks for all the help!!
  4. Hey everyone! Just got my 91 2.2L Legacy engine running in my 82 brat and it moves under its own power now! I just need to weld the exhaust in and finish up a bit more with the wiring to complete it! For those who have done the swap, how can I go about putting in a temperature gauge? Im not sure about a digital one or if there is any way to make it work with the brat gauge cluster. If I go digital should I run it off the harness or do something else? Also for the speedometer and tachometer I know I can use some unused wires in the brat and legacy VSS (USA) but does anyone have a picture of how they wired it? Also is there any calibration or anything needed to line them up? Tried putting the brat speedo cable in the legacy 5MT but no dice lol... If I have left any info out or used weird lingo please let me know I would appreciate it! Thanks for the help!
  5. Yes we got it! Haven't checked it yet but will do. Thank you!
  6. Yes using the ECU and wiring harness from the 91
  7. Hey everyone... I am in the final stages of my swap, only thing left is the electric hookup. We have got everything we can think of hooked up. ECU had power for both standby and ignition, fuel pump turns on, but not spark when it turns over. Also have bypassed the clutch switch inhibitor. Is there something specific needed to hook up to enable the coil packs? Anything else that we can test? Cant think of what is limiting this at the moment. I suspect that it is something simple, any insight would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you! Engine is from a 91 legacy into an 82 brat.
  8. Hey everyone I am currently swapping an Ej 22 from a 91 legacy in my brat. I got a new phone and lost my pics. Is anyone able to identify the 3 lines in the pics I have attached? I appreciate it thank you! I'm in the US btw.

    EA to Ej gauge cluster

    Thanks for the help! I have an 82 brat btw don't know if that changes anything. I don't want to cut it out, do you know what the VSS sensor look like? Thanks again! Also I am not sure but I think the car may have originated in California based on what the previous over said.
  11. Hello everyone, I am getting closer to finishing my EJ swap in my brat, donor is a 1991 legacy. I am still stuck on the wire harness thinning but I figured I might as well ask this since it relates a bit. Am I going to be able to use the brat gauge cluster or do I have to swap in the legacy cluster? I am not sure if they are the same size or if its an easy fix. What did you all do? Thanks!!

    EJ swap harness follow up

    Ok got it with the brake rez! And with regards to the fans, I don't really understand your lingo and terms, so correct me if I am wrong, but if I leave the fan wires and connectors in the EJ loom, plug em in, and don't change anything else, the fans will run when I start the car. Are there any other connectors that I missed when labeling and figuring out what I need? Also what would you suggest with the fuel pump? Thanks! Sorry to keep bothering you!

    EJ swap harness follow up

    No need for brake rez? How come? Also yes 12 is much smaller but it was with 11 so I will keep it there. In regards to the fan, the EA wiring only has one fan connector whereas I have 2 on the EJ and I have a couple of fans so I thought I would just use those instead. Can you think of any other connectors that I will need to include? I know the fuel pump is one but that was on the secondary loom so I may have to cut down that other loom for the sake of including the fuel pump. Thanks for the help!
