EA 81 Transmission Q's

Recommended Posts

Just making sure here (after a failed extensive search), The 4th gear ratio is taller on the 83/84 models than the 80-82's, right?

Hi NV,

 

the graphic i saw had a breakdown of all the subaru transmissions, the 80-82 ones had the same first and second ratios, third was 25% lower, and 4th was 15% lower than the 82-84 transmissions.

 

I thought the taller gears would be good to have on the Phoenix trip, but I was wrong. So, my spare trans will be going in, unless I can find a DR 5speed soon.

 

sure would not have helped on the drive over the Sierras, I only got to second once between Boomtown and Truckee...crawling along in first

 

will try to find that file for you...

 

David
