82 to ej22 swap

Recommended Posts

I going to be doing an ejj 22 swap on my 88 gl wagon and I'll have absolutely everything including dash, gauge cluster, etc from the donor car, will I still have to make my own harness if I just swap everything over? I know it's gonna take alot of work, but is it possible??

Get the factory harness and cut one down. WAY easier than making your own loom! 

Overlay this over your L series loomand off you go. 

Of course it’s not as easy as just saying it, but once you’ve got your head around it, the wiring isn’t hard to do.

This is all super helpful, thank you, now not only do I have the ej22 but I have the factory 5 speed as well, is there anything special I need to know or will it bolt up??

With the EJ five speed you’ll need to fabricate a gearbox crossmember, modified tail shaft will be needed and you’ll need a set of MPFI L series front drive shafts. You might need to modify the shifter linkages to fit the L’s body too. Make sure you’re running the same rear diff rationto that of the gearbox.

If you want to run the L series dual range 5spd, you’ll need an adaptor plate and elongate the holes in the flywheel to bolt to the EJ’s crankshaft. It’s also a good ideas to have the clutch beefed up. Many talk about the XT6 clutch used in these conversions. 

The adaptor plate is probably the easiest way to go.
